Medical Student Mentors

Students:
The Interventional Radiology Medical Student Council's mentorship program connects IR residents, fellows, and attendings with current medical students. We intend for this resource to help students get advice about how to enhance their IR experience during medical school, whether it’s regarding electives, research opportunities, or establishing greater IR exposure at their schools. We hope you will take advantage of this great opportunity to connect with some outstanding mentors from around the country.

Mentors:
If you are a senior student, resident, fellow, or attending, please consider joining our mentorship community to help others learn more about the outstanding specialty of IR by filling out this online form.

Have thoughts, questions or concerns? Simply email us at sir.msc.mentor@gmail.com and an IR resident, fellow, or attending will be on hand to provide a response.
