Overview


The Vascular and Interventional Radiology rotation is a month long course which provides exposure to all aspects of vascular and interventional radiology including care of patients in an ambulatory clinic, management of inpatients, as well as exposure to a broad spectrum of procedures.

Objectives


The primary goal of the Vascular & Interventional Radiology rotation at the University of Chicago is to introduce medical students to the specialty of vascular & interventional radiology (VIR).

Upon completion of the rotation, students should also:

1) Acquire knowledge of established and evolving sciences pertinent to the subspecialty of VIR (this includes an understanding of the anatomy, physiology, disease processes and physics of diagnostic imaging) and apply this knowledge to patient care.

2) Develop an understanding of the role of the interventional
radiologist in the health care system.

3) Develop interpersonal and communication skills that allow timely and effective written and verbal exchange of information between the interventional radiologist and other members of the healthcare team, and, between the interventional radiologist and the patient.

4) Develop a commitment to carrying out professional responsibilities and adhering to ethical principles.

5) Develop skills and habits that allow for effective appraisal and assimilation of scientific evidence.

Evaluation


Final grades for the rotation will be based on 2 components:

1) Students will be evaluated by the VIR faculty using a grading system based on the well-established ACGME endorsed general competencies (patient care, medical knowledge, practice based learning, interpersonal and communication skills, professionalism, and systems-based practice).

2) Students will be required to give a 10 minute case presentation during the weekly Thursday morning VIR section conference.
