Program Overview

Musculoskeletal Radiology

Musculoskeletal fellows have 5 hours of educational conferences each week, consisting of daily case-based conferences and didactic lectures which are shared by the SAUSHEC faculty at each facility three days per week. In addition, fellows attend an MRI club, process improvement, quality meeting, journal club, multidisciplinary conferences and difficult case conferences. Each month (13 four-week blocks), the didactic curriculum is devoted to a different anatomical area or modality in musculoskeletal radiology. The fellow is encouraged to attend daily morning conferences which encompass all of the radiology subspecialties, and are conducted in a structured format throughout the year to include an equal distribution among all of the nine core radiology disciplines. We are fortunate to have several nationally known consultant radiologists and nuclear medicine physicians supplement our lecture series throughout the year. In addition to the conferences, fellows attend and participate in numerous clinical conferences and tumor boards with our Orthopedic and Rheumatology colleagues.

Each department maintains its own library and teaching aids to include DVDs. Fellows are provided with their own tablet laptops at the beginning of fellowship. Desktop computers with internet access are also available at every radiology PACS workstation, allowing seamless access to learning resources.
