The Integrated Interventional Radiology/Diagnostic Radiology Residency at University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix strives to create the next generation of clinically minded interventional radiologists in the spirit of collaboration, diversity and creativity that has been the hallmark of the specialty since its inception.

Our program began in 2023 as we added our first residents and each year, we participate in the Match® and do not currently accept outside applications. The residency is a multi-site program that leverages the expertise of all our partners in the training of a new generation of radiologists. Ankit Shah, MD, is the program director and he is supported by two associate program directors, Cole Mendenhall, MD and Khaled Malkawi, MD. This program is additionally supported by Department Chair Frank Rybicki MD, PhD.

Through partnerships with Banner – University Medical Center Phoenix, the Phoenix VA Medical Center, and Phoenix Children’s, we provide the comprehensive interventional radiology and diagnostic radiology training experience — with exposure to high level trauma, neuro (stroke, nosebleed embolization, spine interventions), peripheral arterial disease, transplant, pediatric and oncologic interventional radiology practice. 

Affiliation with the College of Medicine – Phoenix provides opportunities for research to the interested candidate and role models in the academic world, including the senior vice president of University of Arizona Health Sciences, the renowned Michael Dake, MD — one of the founders of aortic stent grafting.

To apply for our next positions, submit an application via the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). If we do not fill in the Match®, we plan to utilize the SOAP process.
