Medical University of South Carolina
Our section directs and interprets all musculoskeletal exams performed at our hospitals and outpatient clinic locations. The MSK fellow is exposed to all diagnostic imaging modalities, including radiography, MRI, CT and ultrasound. The fellow also performs and directs approximately 300 CT, fluoroscopy and ultrasound guided procedures per year including joint aspirations and injections (fluoro and US), bone and soft tissue mass biopsies (CT and US), bone marrow biopsies/aspirations (fluoro and CT) and perineural/peritendinous injections (US).
Our section works closely with the departments of Orthopedics (including two orthopedic oncologists), Sports Medicine and Rheumatology and participates in medical student and resident education. Elective time is available for research or rotations outside of MSK.
Good communication skills and a commitment to teamwork are requisites.
