CIRSE’s student activities in a nutshell
IR Curriculum for Medical Students
Interventional radiology (IR) is one of the most innovative medical fields, combining minimally invasive image-guided procedures for a wide spectrum of conditions with clinical involvement, resulting in optimal patient care.
Due to its innovative nature, patient-centred treatment approach and the ever-increasing applications of interventional procedures, IR has become one of the most interesting career choices for medical students. Have a look at the CIRSE’s IR Curriculum for Medical Students describing the most important procedures performed by interventional radiologists.
