The UW is proud to welcome its second Interventional Radiology Residency Class. Welcome Class of 2024!

The University of Washington was accredited by the ACGME to begin the IR Residency in April, 2016. We matched our second IR class in March, 2018. Welcome Class of 2024!

The University of Washington offers the IR Residency, Early Specialization in IR (ESIR) pathway within the Diagnostic Radiology Residency, and the Independent IR Residency.
