Job Summary: The Department of Radiology is recruiting a fellowship-trained musculoskeletal radiologist with high integrity and a strong commitment to professionalism to join our team at either the Instructor, Assistant or Associate Professor, or Professor level.
Our growing and diverse practice has the breadth, depth, and scale for faculty at any career stage and with general or specialized interests anywhere along the spectrum from clinician-educator to clinician-scientist. We emphasize mentorship, as well as career and leadership development.
The Division of Musculoskeletal Radiology of the University of Michigan provides a complete spectrum of state-of-the-art imaging and imaging-guided interventional procedures of the musculoskeletal system. In addition to interpreting radiographs, the division performs fluoroscopy, CT, MRI, MR arthrography, and sonography of the musculoskeletal system. We also perform daily imaging guided biopsies of bones and soft tissues, using CT and ultrasound guidance given our busy musculoskeletal tumor practice. Other procedures include joint and bursal injections, calcific tendinitis lavage and aspiration, radiofrequency ablation of osteoid osteomas, and various tendon treatments, including fenestration and platelet-rich plasma.
The case mix in our practice includes orthopaedics, musculoskeletal tumors, trauma, primary care, rheumatology, and sports medicine with the latter related to our role in caring for the collegiate athletes at the University of Michigan. Musculoskeletal ultrasound, both diagnostic and interventional, is an important aspect of our practice; therefore, some degree of musculoskeletal ultrasound experience is preferred, although we will provide direct supervision and training as needed. In addition to 4 – 5 musculoskeletal fellows per year, we have 2 physician assistants on our team.
The musculoskeletal radiology division is active in research and teaching with ample opportunity to provide education to medical students, residents, and musculoskeletal fellows. There are also several interdisciplinary conferences, such as weekly sarcoma tumor board and others including rheumatology, sports medicine, and multiple myeloma conferences.
Required Qualifications: M.D. or equivalent, ABR-certified, has passed the core examination and on track to take the certifying examination within 15 months of completing residency, fellowship-trained in musculoskeletal imaging, and the ability to obtain a medical license in the State of Michigan. Evidence of clinical competence and competence in teaching is expected.
U-M EEO/AA Statement: The University of Michigan is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
