Musculoskeletal

The Department of Radiology at UNC Hospitals offers a one-year fellowship in Musculoskeletal Imaging. This appointment may be combined with rotations in CT, Neuroradiology, Body MRI or Breast Imaging, depending on the availability of those rotations. The Musculoskeletal service performs a full range of diagnostic imaging, including conventional radiography, MRI, CT, US and a variety of interventional musculoskeletal procedures. We also provide staffing for emergency department radiography services. All interventional, CT and MRI studies are reviewed by a musculoskeletal radiology attending prior to final interpretation. The fellow will read conventional radiographs independently as an attending on the plain film service on average of once every two weeks, as well as on call.. Research and teaching opportunities are available during the fellowship year.

The Musculoskeletal Division currently has four full-time faculty members. The entire department is fully PACS-integrated, and soft copy reading is the standard. The Department has state-of-the-art imaging equipment including current generation MR scanners, 64 slice CT scanners, US machines, radiography and fluoroscopy units, and bone densitometers. We perform approximately 45,000 to 50,000 studies each year including a variety of interventional musculoskeletal procedures.

To be eligible for consideration, a fellowship candidate must have completed an accredited residency in Diagnostic Radiology, must be Board-certified or have passed the ABR Core Examination at the time of the fellowship year (a requirement for credentialing), and be eligible for a full NC Medical license.

To apply for one of the three Musculoskeletal Imaging Fellowship positions, the following information is required, in addition to the application: an original medical school transcript, the USMLE board scores and (3) letters of recommendation, including one from the residency program director.
