Cleveland Clinic invites highly qualified Board Eligible/Certified Interventional Radiology candidates to join our faculty as we continue to develop our clinical practice and facilities. This position requires formal fellowship training in Interventional Radiology. Cleveland Clinic, an internationally renowned mid-western sub-specialty medical center, is comprised of a 1400+ bed main hospital, ambulatory care facilities, and research institute.
There are nine additional community hospitals integrated into the IR practice. The Interventional Section has a long history of exceptional care for patients with Vascular, Hepatobiliary, Gastrointestinal, Renal and Oncologic diseases. Diagnostic imaging and interventional equipment are state-of-the-art, including 6 angiography labs at the main campus, additional angiography labs at the associated community hospitals and an active MRA/ CTA program. There is an interventional radiology clinic, as well as dedicated multidisciplinary clinics for liver tumors, vascular malformations and IVC filters. The IR staff are assisted by 5 IR nurse practitioners/physicians assistants as well as 3 radiologist assistants. Our annual interventional procedural volume exceeds 12,000 at the main campus and over 3000 at the community hospitals.
A wide spectrum of peripheral vascular, organ specific and transplant related vascular interventions are routinely performed. Gastrointestinal and genitourinary interventional procedures are common and include diagnostic cholangiography, transhepatic biliary drainage, TIPS creation, percutaneous gastrostomy and nephrostomy placement, ureteral stenting and percutaneous stone extraction. There is an active transcatheter therapeutic program including uterine fibroid embolization, hepatic chemoembolization, hepatic radioembolization, arteriovenous malformation embolization/ sclerosis, PAD and pulmonary artery angioplasty. The Section also performs ablative procedures of renal, hepatic and soft-tissue tumors.
The section provides image-guided tunneled vascular access services and is responsible for the maintenance of hemodialysis access for the institution.
Clinical and basic science research opportunities exist and facilities include a full angio-animal laboratory. The Section has use of a fully staffed and professionally managed Radiology research group within the Imaging Institute which coordinates and supports clinical research and trials. We are a center of excellence for liver tumor research.
There are 3 ACGME approved fellowship positions and 3 annual positions for our approved independent IR residency program slated to begin in 2020; resident and fellow education is emphasized.
Staff candidates should have training in peripheral vascular intervention, TIPS, hepatobiliary, genitourinary, embolotherapy, venous interventions, tumor therapies and dialysis access procedures.
