The University of Nebraska Fellowship in Vascular and Interventional Radiology is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (US ACGME). The Fellow in Vascular and Interventional Radiology must have successfully completed a US Residency training program in Diagnostic Radiology accredited by the US ACGME or an overseas program that conforms to similar standards. The program is a one year clinical program in which the fellow will participate in a broad range of vascular and non-vascular interventional radiology procedures including the pre-procedure evaluation of patients, pre- and post-procedure consultations, and appropriate follow-up care. The Fellow will be given graded responsibility for decision making and performance of procedures as the year progresses with attending physician supervision provided in a manner consistent with the requirements of the HCFA US IL-372 Teaching Physician Regulations. Although primarily a clinical training program, Fellows will be also provided with opportunities to engage in research. As part of the training process, the Fellow will provide clinical services at the University of Nebraska Medical Center and the Omaha Veterans Administration Center.
