Specialty status “crucial” to give IR control over training future generations


Raman Uberoi (Oxford, UK), who delivered this year’s Andreas Gruentzig Lecture at the CIRSE annual meeting told Interventional News: “We need to radically think about how we train future generations, [and] how we support interventional radiologists to give them control over their working lives […] to be able to deliver the 24/7 interventional practice that we want to give patients.”

“Now, I believe the way we can do that is to create a specialty of interventional radiology, not just in the UK, but every country throughout the world,” Uberoi exhorts, noting this is “ultimately about improving patient care right around the world,” while noting that globally, two countries (the USA and Japan) have succeeded in obtaining specialty status for interventional radiology (IR).
