The MSK fellowship at the AIRP (American Institute for Radiologic Pathology) includes a combination of high volume sports medicine MR as well as the unique perspective of learning that imaging appearance of disease is based on the underlying pathology. Clinical work is performed at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center Bethesda (2 to 3 days per week) which includes a high volume of sports medicine MR (fellows typically read nearly 1500 annually), as well as radiographs, CT and ultrasound Biopsy experience is highlighted at Washington Hospital Center (1 day per week) with an active MSK oncology practice. Conferences include 3 monthly conferences with Rheumatology colleagues and an arthroscopy correlation conference. Finally over 300 MSK cases are submitted to the AIRP and are reviewed annually with the fellow. These cases as well as consultation cases from throughout the US are reviewed with our pathology colleagues at 2-3 conferences per week. Fellows are expected to perform research and present their work at either the SSR and or the ARRS meetings. Overall the AIRP fellowship has been in existence since 1994 and is a well-rounded experience allowing transition to either private practice or academics with a unique exposure to the pathologic basis of MSK disease.
There is no call and there is the ability of locum tenens on the weekends to supplement salary. US Citizenship is required. Dual citizenship not permitted. One state full medical license is required for clinical work at Walter Reed. A DC training license is required for Washington Hospital Center.

The strong clinical and procedural training at Hopkins enables the fellows to become MSK radiologists who can thrive either in private practice or academic settings. Fellows are exposed to a large volume of diverse and multi-modality cases in sports medicine, rheumatology, musculoskeletal oncology, peripheral nerve imaging, and pediatric orthopedic surgery. In addition, fellows gain a strong experience in musculoskeletal procedures performed under ultrasound, fluoroscopy, CT and MR guidance. Fellows perform joint aspirations, joint and peripheral nerve injections as well as soft tissue and bone biopsies. A robust interventional MR Service is in place. Trainees perform over 300 multi-modality MSK procedures during the year. An additional distinctive feature of the program is the close rapport between MSK radiology and the referring clinicians as the reading room is situated within the orthopedic surgery In addition to routine sports imaging cases, the MSK fellowship is also enriched by diverse mix of cases including kinematic 4D CT imaging, high resolution peripheral nerve imaging, advanced functional MR imaging for soft tissue and bone sarcomas and metal artifact reduction techniques (with MRI and CT).
The MSK section covers nearly the entire health system with a high volume of outpatient imaging at our 4 outpatient offices. Each of these offices contain the latest in CT, MR and US technology. There has been recent expansion with multiple new outpatient offices and associated significant increase in the volume of musculoskeletal imaging studies.
Duration: 12 months. Qualified applicants must have satisfactorily completed an ACGME- accredited radiology residency, be board certified or board eligible (passed core exam) by the ABR, and able to obtain a medical license in the state of Maryland prior to the start of the fellowship.

The University of Maryland Medical System (UMMS) delivers comprehensive health care services through a network of 13 affiliated hospitals. MSK Fellows provide clinical care for several UMMS hospitals, associated imaging centers and the Baltimore VA Medical Center. MSK radiology fellowship training is based at the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC), the flagship academic medical center of UMMS. UMMC is located in downtown Baltimore on the campus of the University of Maryland Baltimore, a short walking distance from Baltimore’s historic Inner Harbor and Oriole Park at Camden Yards. MSK fellows at UMMC receive a well-rounded education with training in trauma (home of the world renowned R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center), sports medicine (strong UM Orthopaedic department and team physicians for the Big Ten Conference UM Terrapins college sports teams), cancer (top tier cancer center: UM Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum Comprehensive Cancer Center), rheumatology, and bread-and-butter inpatient and outpatient MSK radiology for adults and children. MSK fellows participate in image-guided biopsy and tumor board, in support of UMMC’s dedicated orthopaedic oncology service. MSK fellows also receive training in image-guided diagnostic/therapeutic joint procedures and diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound. Primary diagnostic imaging modalities include state-of-the-art MRI (3.0 T and 1.5 T), CT (includes spectral), x-ray, and fluoroscopy, with additional exposure to PET/MRI, PET/CT, and bone densitometry (DXA). Graduates of our MSK radiology fellowship program are well prepared for careers in private practice, academic radiology or federal service (VA medical centers, etc.).
Positions offered: 2 positions through the MSK fellowship match program.
Duration: 12 months.
MSK Fellows are bestowed the academic rank of Visiting Instructor by the University of Maryland School of Medicine.
Optional research and teaching opportunities are available.
