Fellowships in Musculoskeletal Imaging
Please Note: Positions for the 2013 Musculoskeletal Imaging Fellowship program have been filled. We are currently accepting applications for 2014.
For qualified physicians interested in advanced training, the Musculoskeletal Radiology Division seeks candidates for several non-tenured clinical instructor positions. Candidates must have an MD or equivalent, and have successfully completed a diagnostic radiology residency at an ACGME accredited institution.
Our one-year post-graduate training fellowship focuses on all aspects of musculoskeletal imaging. Fellows will acquire considerable experience with a wide variety of image-guided procedures in addition to cross-sectional and plain radiographic diagnostic work; fellows will write at least one paper for publication. Responsibilities include supervised (and occasionally unsupervised) clinical work, resident teaching, and research. Training takes place in one of the premier academic communities in the country, the University of Virginia Health System located in Charlottesville, VA. More >
The Division of Musculoskeletal Radiology performs routine and complex diagnostic film reading and procedures relating to the musculoskeletal system. This includes plain films, ultrasound, CT, MRI, arthrography, biopsies of bone and peripheral soft tissue lesions, nerve blocks, epidurals, and joint injections for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. Our physicians work closely with other departments within the UVA Health System such as Sports Medicine, Orthopedics, Rheumatology, Radiation Oncology, Pathology, Neurosurgery, and others. Consultative services are also provided for especially complex cases to determine the imaging strategy best suited for each situation.
Recognizing the personal dedication required to pursue post-graduate fellowship training, we are committed to helping each individual further their expertise in utilizing imaging technologies to diagnose and treat disease.
The timeline for the Fellowship Year beginning July 1, 2014 will be:
- Applications accepted now
- Interviews will take place late September to early November or until filled
- Offers to external candidates will be made on a rolling basis
