Additional Information:

The musculoskeletal imaging fellowship is a one-year clinical program for three fellows. The fellows will have the opportunity to work closely under the guidance of four musculoskeletal attendings who are the Radiology Consultants for the Chicago Bears. This one-year program in musculoskeletal imaging includes plain films, arthrography, percutaneous bone biopsy, CT, and MRI. Approximately 60-100 musculoskeletal MRIs and 15-20 CTs are performed daily. Images are interpreted on our GE PACS system at Evanston Hospital from nine clinical 1.5 and 3.0 Tesla MR systems, and eight CT scanners (including a 64-slice volume CT). Additionally, there are 3-6 arthrograms or other musculoskeletal interventional procedures daily. Three days per week are dedicated to diagnostic and therapeutic MSK Ultrasound. MSK fellows will see a wide range of pathology with an emphasis on MRI and sports-related injuries. The fellows will also be involved in the care of elite athletes, such as professional football players and college athletes. Opportunities are also available for clinical and basic research in our new 10,000 square foot radiology research facility with 1.5 Tesla and 3.0 Tesla whole-body MR systems. The educational opportunities are enhanced by monthly rheumatology conferences. MSK fellows participate in the general radiology fellow call pool.

Rush University is offering an ACGME approved one year dedicated musculoskeletal imaging fellowship position starting July1, 2022.  Rush is located in the heart of the Illinois Medical District, just west of downtown Chicago.  The medical center is in a growth mode with current construction of a new outpatient facility that will house a new outpatient imaging center, cancer center and neurology clinic.  The majority of the fellowship will be spent in the Midwest Orthopedics building, a state of the art facility.  The musculoskeletal radiology section reads and manages six MRI scanners and a CT for Midwest Orthopedics as well as multiple MRI and CT scanners at Rush.

Rush University provides imaging and procedural services for Midwest Orthopedics, one of the top orthopedic groups in the country.  The fellow will have daily access to a wide variety of musculoskeletal imaging ranging from sports medicine to bone tumor and sarcoma evaluation.  We perform all imaging for the Chicago Bulls, Chicago White Sox, Chicago Fire, Joffrey Ballet Academy and multiple local collegiate sports programs.  

We also interpret imaging for the medical center which provides a wide range of musculoskeletal imaging including rheumatology.  The fellow will participate in multiple interdisciplinary conferences including weekly sarcoma conference, rheumatology conference and orthopedic sports medicine conferences.  Dedicated time will be provided for a research project and to spend time with interventional radiology and neuroradiology sections for spine imaging and procedural exposure.  All of our radiologists are actively involved in research projects with the Midwest Orthopedics department.

The musculoskeletal department consists of four dedicated board certified fellowship trained musculoskeletal radiologists.  The department is a very collegial group that values teaching, research and professional development.  We are excited to offer this unique opportunity and are accepting applications for the 2021 academic year.  The position requires graduation from an ACGME approved radiology residency program.

Please submit your common musculoskeletal fellowship application with three letters of recommendation to Tisa Williams to schedule an interview.

Clinical Training Offered:

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.
