Anything with a high salary + cool procedures + lifestyle (not to mention the fact it's a new independent specialty and saying 'interventional radiology' just sounds damn sexy) is going to attract those med students who chase the prestige. Just found a frustrated attending who arrives at 7a and stays until all of his case load is completed, with cases being added throughout the day. It really depends on the institution, some IR attendings at academic hospitals have hellish lives because their leadership is crap. It's malignant, and it sucks, and fuck that. Mind letting me know what your background is? Derm is super well established, well-defined, and distinct from other specialities. It is no coincidence that the top students have somehow all become interested in the same handful of surgical subspecialties and derm.

The docs owning these small centers see the writing on the wall and are offered a lot of money to buy out -- you'd be a fool to say no. EM is usually shift work and very little call. The average salary post-graduation from an interventional radiology residency is $427,000, provided one does not go on to sub-specialty training which can change the salary substantially. Even though those statistics mean very little in and of themselves, I suspect they are indicative of a good thing still. so what is it then that is making IR so appealing? I don't know. Applicants need to take a step back and understand why they are applying for a certain specialty. Everyone who does anything is needed by everyone at the end of the day. Every surgeon everywhere throwing up their hands and saying "No clue what to do here"? why? What happened to radiology a few years ago that led to 150 unfilled spots?

I hope you get a real answer to your question. Lifetime earnings-wise, I see the MD beating most other professions on average. Yes, I get that it is probably different when you are the one doing it, but was I willing to bet on that being true after 20 years? No idea there was a difference between the two. A Diagnostic Radiology Resident in the El Paso, TX Area area reported making $55,173 per year. It's different from school to school. that is a MAJOR red flag, imo.

[–]-QFever-MD-PGY2 4 points5 points6 points 2 years ago (0 children). Why are students buying the derm hype? Its a good field, but the fundamentals of it did not change recently except for the fact that you can enter into it 1 year earlier. I remember this one disgruntled plastic resident who wished he had done IR but never knew about it. Additionally, the one attending I know gets 70 days of paid vacation a year.

Where once a state had many independent hospitals, now most states are literally turning into 2 or 3 hospital corporation systems (where every hospital is owned by a single corporation that owns all the hospitals and many of the outpatient centers in the region). People follow bullshit heresay from this guy or that guy to form their ideas - half the time their source just heard it from another BS source...and the cycle continues until the stock plummets or rises. By the third I was bored as fuck. The 95th percentile students bought "high.". You did your research and what you say is on point. The problem with IR is that there is a huge pool of DR that is willing to sub specialize into IR when the incentives come...and the time is ripe for that now. In a world thats outcome, length of stay, and profit margin driven, getting that procedure done sooner will likely make everyone except the IR team happy. Nothing, but I'd rather be happy in pediatrics making $200k as opposed to miserable in ENT making $500k (feel free to insert whatever specialties you'd want here, I'm just making these up). Pay most of the debt and save on interest or make standard payments and start doing the things that I really want to do? IR is a brand new niche speciality that is still in flux and overlaps a ton with DR and the turf is still being fought over.
