We are seeking to fill an unexpected non-accredited Musculoskeletal Imaging fellowship position for July 1, 2021 start at the University of Chicago Medicine (UCM).
The Musculoskeletal Imaging Fellowship at the University of Chicago Medical Center is a one-year non-accredited clinical training program constituting a closely supervised experience in the application and interpretation of imaging examinations and procedures as they relate to the analysis of disorders of the musculoskeletal system, including bones, joints, and soft tissues. One position is offered per year. The Musculoskeletal Radiology Section offers state-of-the-art multimodality imaging and image-guided interventional procedures for the patients of the University of Chicago Medical Center. The busy Orthopaedic Oncology Service has long been an example of a team-approach to patient care, and the Musculoskeletal Radiology Section provides comprehensive services as part of the University of Chicago Musculoskeletal Oncology Group, including CT and US guided bone/soft tissue biopsies, as well as radiofrequency ablation procedures. The radiologists also work closely with the Section of Sports Medicine to offer imaging services including to elite athletes, such as professional basketball players and college athletes. The section also works closely with the Section of Rheumatology to diagnose complex disorders of joints.
The Musculoskeletal Radiology reading rooms are located on the 4th floor of the Duchossois Center for Advanced Medicine (“DCAM”) at the University of Chicago Medical Center. A team of dedicated orthopaedic radiology technologists are located adjacent to the reading rooms, and provide services for the orthopaedic surgery and rheumatology clinics. We also interpret radiographs as well as CT and MRI examinations obtained on the first floor of the DCAM (outpatients) in Mitchell Hospital (inpatients and emergency room patients), and in the Center for Care and Discovery (“CCD” - inpatients). Joint injections and aspirations are generally performed in the fluoroscopy suite in DCAM 1C. Diagnostic ultrasound examinations, as well as US/CT-guided biopsies and radiofrequency ablation procedures, are performed in Mitchell Hospital and CCD. Ample opportunities are provided for both clinical and basic science research via Department of Radiology Research Centers and Programs. The section participates in multi-disciplinary conferences throughout the week including Sports Medicine, Rheumatology, Orthopedic Oncology and Pediatric Rheumatology conferences.
Applicants for the Musculoskeletal Imaging Fellowship position must have completed an approved Radiology Residency Program and screened by the selection committee. All fellows must be eligible for Illinois Medical Licensure.
