Faculty Adviser: 
Dr. Sun Ho Ahn

The Introduction to Interventional Radiology preclinical elective is a semester-long course aimed at introducing first and second year students to the procedurally focused field of interventional radiology. In this elective, students will attend organ-based lectures from interventional radiologists, as well as shadow cases in the IR department at RIH. These lectures will loosely follow the anatomy learned during the first year curriculum and will include an ultrasound learning component. Students will be evaluated on an S/NC basis. Expectations include attendances at the lectures, shadowing in the clinic and OR, and a final (brief) case presentation.
