Musculoskeletal Radiology and Intervention Fellowship
Our goals are to train fellows in advanced image interpretation of a wide variety of disorders of the musculoskeletal system and to teach proficiency in image-guided musculoskeletal procedures. Our practice involves diagnosis and treatment of the entire spectrum of musculoskeletal disorders including trauma, internal derangement, tumors, infection, and arthritis. Through one-on-one teaching at the workstation, case conferences, lectures, and interdepartmental conferences with our Orthopedic colleagues, the fellow will become comfortable interpreting these cases. As a tertiary care center, we care for patients throughout South and Central Texas of all socioeconomic classes and health. We are fortunate to work closely with 2 Orthopedic Oncologists (UT Health San Antonio MD Anderson Cancer Center) who refer bone and soft tissue tumor cases which are discussed in our weekly Orthopedic Oncology and Sarcoma conferences. As part of our team, the fellow will perform image-guided procedures at University Hospital and our outpatient imaging centers, The Medical Arts & Research Center and UT Hill Country. Additionally, our fellow receives an appointment as Clinical Instructor in the Department of Radiology. As a Clinical Instructor, the fellow provides faculty-level on-call coverage at our Level I Trauma Center. Therefore, board certification/eligibility as well as Texas licensure are prerequisites for the fellowship.

The Musculoskeletal Radiology Division at UTSW provides comprehensive training to the fellows in diagnostic and interventional services. Our goal is to provide fellows with the knowledge and skill that they will need to provide patients with safe, effective and innovative care. The fellowship is designed to encourage and engage fellows who are innovating and leading the way to advance the MSK Imaging field. The fellows will have the opportunity to benefit from the unique career development and mentoring opportunities available at UT Southwestern.
Fellows run the service on a day to day basis and form an integral part of the Musculoskeletal Imaging and intervention team. Fellows protocol all the MRI and arthrogram examinations to be performed on high-end 1.5T and 3T scanners throughout the campus. Attendance at many multi-disciplinary conferences enhances knowledge and provides valuable communication skills allowing them to become progressively independent throughout the year.
Our Fellows get an opportunity to perform a variety of procedures ranging from routine joint injections to radiofrequency modulation of pain pathways. We work very closely with orthopedic oncology, rheumatology, sports and various sub-specialists in providing care to patients who need biopsies of musculoskeletal tumors and image guided interventions for pain syndromes.
A professional budget is provided for educational expenses. Attendance at national conferences with presentations is highly encouraged. In addition, fellows use their protected time to advance their education and have the opportunity and support to be able to participate in various research projects or design new research studies from the ground up.
Fellow specific lectures are provided with a focus on patient work-up and follow-up. A high case volume provides ample "hands-on and at site" teaching time. UT Southwestern is an educationally driven institution with numerous interdisciplinary conferences. Our weekly conferences include Texas Bone Club, Sarcoma Tumor Board, Divisional Case Conferences and M&M and the Ortho Chiefs Conference. On a monthly basis, we have Hand & Foot Conferences, Sports and Joint Conference, Arthroscopy Correlation Conference as well as the Rheumatology Grand Rounds.
