Clinical excellence is foundational and needed, and we deeply value the research and teaching pillars of our Department. Mentorship, career and leadership development, and an inclusive culture are emphasized. 

The Division of Musculoskeletal Radiology provides clinical care on our main campus at the University Hospital, attached CS Mott Children’s Hospital, and multiple ambulatory sites. We provide a complete spectrum of state-of-the-art musculoskeletal imaging and imaging-guided interventional procedures. The division performs radiography, fluoroscopy, CT, MRI, MR and fluoroscopic arthrography, and advanced sonography of the musculoskeletal system. The division also has a busy ultrasound- and CT-guided interventional service. Procedures include bone biopsy, soft tissue biopsy, 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 orthopedics, 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. 

Musculoskeletal Radiology is one of 9 clinical divisions, which together with our robust basic science division, form the Department of Radiology faculty. With approximately 150 faculty, we consistently rank near the top nationally in NIH funding, post-graduate radiology education programs, and in the US News & World Report rankings of top hospitals. The Division provides training for fellows and our world-class radiology residents. 

Responsibilities include leading and inspiring a diverse team, conducting outstanding collaborative clinical care, teaching a spectrum of learners (medical students, residents, fellows, and faculty), and performing innovative research. We have many ongoing research programs within the Division and Department, some of which involve close collaboration with our own Basic Sciences Division, and with colleagues across Michigan Medicine and the University of Michigan campus. The University of Michigan Medical School has the largest group of health services researchers in the United States at our Institute for Healthcare Policy & Innovation, and an excellent Faculty Development Program. The University of Michigan has been rated the best public university in the country and across-the-spectrum excellence is present in areas such as Business, Engineering, Arts and Sciences, Arts and Sciences; innumerable opportunities for collaboration are available.

The city is culturally rich and provides excellent educational options for children.
