Musculoskeletal Imaging Fellowship

The Department of Diagnostic Radiology at the Yale University School of Medicine is pleased to sponsor a 1 year fellowship in Musculoskeletal and Orthopedic Imaging.

The training will include plain film interpretation, including general orthopedics, trauma, pediatric imaging, orthopedic CT, MRI, interventional procedures (bone and soft tissue biopsies), arthrography, and CT guided tumor localization. Candidates must have completed a radiology training program, be board certified or board eligible and be licensed by the state of Connecticut by the time of commencement of training.

The fellow will attend and participate in relevant conferences including sports medicine (weekly), orthopedic grand rounds (weekly), multidisciplinary orthopedic oncology conference (weekly), Journal Club and didactic radiologic musculoskeletal conference (weekly). Departmental Radiology conferences include 2 daily resident conferences and Radiology Grand Rounds (biweekly).

The musculoskeletal imaging section has three dedicated radiologists on staff and performs approximately 6000 musculoskeletal MRI examinations on 6 1.5T GE clinical magnets and two 3.0 TGE clinical magnets. There are several additional magnets dedicated to research in our MR research center. The section performs musculoskeletal plain film interpretations, arthrography, bone biopsies, and bone CT examinations. Yale New Haven Hospital is a Level 1 Trauma Center with an extensive exposure to blunt and penetrating bone injury and its imaging. Fellows will be encouraged to complete one or more research projects during the 12 month fellowship.
