Musculoskeletal Imaging Fellowship 2024-2025
Emory University is a leading research university that fosters excellence and attracts world-class talent to innovate today and prepare leaders for the future. We welcome candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of our academic community.Description
The Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences, Division of Musculoskeletal Imaging is offering a one-year fellowship in diagnostic and procedural orthopedic imaging which emphasizes clinical service, resident teaching, and scholarly activity.
The division is comprised of experienced and highly skilled faculty members who provide orthopedic imaging interpretation and consultation for the Atlanta Falcons, Atlanta Hawks, Atlanta Braves, Atlanta Dream, Georgia Tech, Emory University collegiate athletes, and for high school and recreational athletes around the area.
The fellowship program emphasizes continuing education and strongly encourages participation in scholarly endeavors. The fellowship program offers protected research time to fellows with approved scholarly projects. All fellows will participate in weekly case conferences and recurring multidisciplinary conferences (sarcoma, peripheral nerve, sports arthroscopy/MR correlation, and foot and ankle), in addition to spending time teaching residents.
The division provides diagnostic and procedural ultrasound services for the departments of Rheumatology and Orthopaedics and its Division of Sports Medicine, and the Peripheral Nerve Clinic. We also have a growing MR neurography service.
We strive to prepare individuals for an academic or subspecialized private practice career. There is a potential opportunity for dedicated research time and observation/correlation of cases in the orthopedic surgery operating room. The fellowship program provides training in radiography, CT, MR, and ultrasound imaging interpretation of bone, joint, soft tissue, and spine pathology. There will be a significant number of image-guided procedures performed including image-guided joint injections, peripheral nerve blocks, joint aspirations, and biopsies of the spine, tumors of bone and soft tissue. Image guidance is performed using CT, ultrasound, and fluoroscopy. At Grady Hospital, a Level I trauma center, there is a significant emphasis on musculoskeletal-related trauma care that fellows may take part in.
Our department works closely with the robust orthopedic oncology practice at Emory and participates in the weekly multidisciplinary sarcoma conference. There are periodic multidisciplinary conferences related to sports medicine and peripheral neuropathy. Fellows will interpret images acquired on various state-of-the-art CT units. Those units include the new, low-dose Carestream Cone Beam CT that allows for 3D imaging and weight-bearing studies with walk-in entry, the 1.5T and 3T MRI units and the Siemens Magnetom Skyra 3T MR imager for 3D imaging of joints and the spine. Fellows will also make use of ultrasound and fluoroscopy units for diagnostic and procedural cases.
MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS: Applicants must have completed or be scheduled to complete a US or Canadian accredited diagnostic radiology residency prior to July 1 of the fellowship year. Qualified applicants must hold an MD degree or equivalent and meet requirements for medical licensure in the state of Georgia.Emory Supports a Diverse and Inclusive Culture
