Musculoskeletal Radiology Fellowship



The Musculoskeletal (MSK) Radiology Fellowship is a one-year fellowship located at the main Northwestern University medical campus in downtown Chicago.  Fellows will have a broad experience including MSK MRI, ultrasound, radiography and CT as well as MSK image-guided procedures, including arthrography, bone and soft-tissue biopsies, and ultrasound guided injections.

At Northwestern, we perform between 25-55 non-spine musculoskeletal MR examinations per day with a variety of pathology including sports injuries, trauma, arthropathy, and tumors.  We routinely perform advanced MR imaging studies including MR neurography and imaging around metal.  CT exams are performed daily and include weight-bearing cone beam CT and dual energy CT techniques.  We see a high volume of diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound and routinely perform a variety of ultrasound guided procedures including corticosteroid injections, calcific tendinosis lavage, biopsies, and aspirations.  In addition, we perform a high volume of fluoroscopy guided and CT guided procedures.  Fellows will become comfortable with and skilled at all aspects of musculoskeletal radiology.

Fellows will benefit from interdisciplinary interactions and formalized conferences in a variety of related clinical areas, including orthopedics/sports medicine, orthopedic oncology, physical and rehabilitation medicine, and rheumatology.  The fellow is also expected to be an active part of medical student and resident teaching.  Opportunities for clinical research are available, and fellows are expected to participate in at least one project that leads either to a presentation at a national radiology meeting or to publication.

The Musculoskeletal Radiology Fellowship currently has 2, one year positions and participates in the Match. Applications for the fellowship will be accepted starting September 1, 2019.  If you are interested in applying to the Musculoskeletal Radiology fellowship program, please send the following requirements below.
