The Musculoskeletal Radiology section at Beaumont Health System, Royal Oak has an unexpected opening for two fellowship positions for the academic year 2021-2022.
The Musculoskeletal Radiology Fellowship in the Department of Radiology at Beaumont Health System, Royal Oak is a one-year ACGME accredited program that prides itself on its commitment to offering excellent training in all aspects of musculoskeletal imaging. The program is one of only a few ACGME accredited musculoskeletal fellowships in the country. Two fellowship positions are available each year.
Comprehensive training in adult and pediatric musculoskeletal anatomy and pathology is offered, including sports medicine, bone and soft tissue tumors, trauma, arthritis and spine pathology. The fellowship offers a wide variety of exposure to musculoskeletal MRI, CT, ultrasound, radiography and imaging-guided procedures including arthrography, bone and soft tissue biopsies, and elective experience with vertebroplasty and facet joint injections. There are weekly resident and fellow specific radiology conferences, and a weekly multidisciplinary tumor board and a monthly rheumatology conference.
Research opportunities are available to the musculoskeletal fellow and one research project is required during the fellowship year. Time and resources are available to fund the fellow to present their research at a meeting. The fellows also are funded for one educational meeting.
There are seven musculoskeletal fellowship trained faculty and one additional faculty with extensive experience covering various aspects of MSK imaging including cross-sectional imaging, radiography and arthrography. The department also has full-time, dedicated MR and CT physicists.
Equipment in the Department of Radiology includes two 3T MR scanners, a high field open MR scanner, and several 1.5T MRI scanners, numerous multidetector CT scanners including a FLASH CT scanner, and a dedicated musculoskeletal ultrasound unit. PET and PET-CT are located in Nuclear Medicine, which is a division of the Department of Radiology. There is also a 2D/3D lab for CT image reconstruction.
The MSK division enjoys a very vibrant relationship with the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, interpreting cases for and interacting with a wide range of subspecialists in areas such as orthopaedic oncology, spine surgery, hand surgery, shoulder surgery, joint replacement, trauma, sports medicine, foot and ankle surgery, and pediatric orthopaedics. Orthopaedic residents spend time on the musculoskeletal imaging service and the MSK fellows spend time in their clinic. Opportunities for collaborative research are available and encouraged.
