Interventional Radiology Interest Group (IRIG)

The purpose of the Interventiona Radiology Interest Group at the University of Arizona College of Medicine Phoenix is to expose students to the field of interventional radiological medicine. To this end, the Interventional Radiology Interest Group will organize and host a variety of events including but not limited to lunch presentations by radiologists and hands-on workshop experiences, and provide students with shadowing experiences in various radiological sub-specialties that allow them to practice image analysis and learn how to integrate and correlate radiological findings with clinical information and other diagnostic data to ultimately provide better care to the patient.

IRIG is open to all students interested in the field of radiology and does not exclude or deny participation of any individual based on race, color, ethnicity, national origin, age, sex, disability, religion, and anything else you can think of.
