IR Curriculum for Medical Students

In order to make medical students aware of the ever-increasing role of interventional radiology in hospital medicine, CIRSE has published an undergraduate curriculum of interventional radiology. With a focus on common acute clinical problems and rare clinical conditions where their identification can help avoid a potentially serious outcome, it outlines a core syllabus in the four main fields of interventional radiology:

  • Vascular Interventional Radiology
  • Non-Vascular Interventional Radiology
  • Interventional Radiological Oncology
  • Musculoskeletal Interventional Radiology

National radiological and interventional radiological societies are invited to use the curriculum and adapt it to their needs. This includes translating it into the national language and promoting it at national universities.
