Under the drop-down menu at the top of the screen labeled "Medical Students" you will find an introduction to the specialty as well as great resources on how to get involved, explore IR, and become a competitive applicant for residency.

Stay connected by signing up for our Mailing List and following us on Facebook and Twitter.
