About the Program

The Musculoskeletal Fellowship Program is a non-accredited subspecialty training program committed to integrating high academic and professional competency standards into a comprehensive training curriculum. We have two positions available for 2020.

Our goal is to train highly competent and qualified radiology subspecialists in musculoskeletal radiology who will support patient care as effective members of the clinical care team with strong interpretive skills, knowledge of appropriate diagnostic radiology tools and cost effective resource utilization.

Goals and Objectives

The objectives of the Musculoskeletal Radiology Fellowship are to:

  • Educate fellows in advanced interpretation of radiography, computed tomography (CT) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
  • Training in fluoroscopy, ultrasound and CT guided procedures.
  • Provide an opportunity for clinical education and academic research using the resources and clinical material available at University Hospital.

Selection Criteria

Selection of applicants will be supervised by the Program Director, with the consultation of other faculty members in the division. Applicants are selected based on a review of submitted documentation, relative academic strength and other criteria determined by the Program Director. Applicants must have an MD or DO degree from an accredited institution, completed an ACGME-accredited residency in diagnostic radiology and must be eligible for board certification or certified by the American Board of Radiology. Applicants must also be eligible for licensure by the State Medical Board of Ohio.

If you are interested in applying to the MSK program, please submit the following materials to the fellowship coordinator via email:

  • Completed SSR Common Application
  • Current CV
  • Personal statement including goals and professional plans
  • Three letters of recommendation including a letter from the director of your residency program. Letters of recommendation must be less than six months old.
  • Copies of USMLE or COMLEX transcripts (Steps 1, 2, and 3 are required prior to beginning fellowship)
  • Photo (optional)

Selected candidates will be invited for a personal interview with the Program Director, other members of the section faculty, and the current fellows. The MSK Fellowship will participate in the NRMP Match for the 2020-2021 academic year. Interviews will be conducted from December 2018 to March 2019.
