Musculoskeletal Imaging Fellowship

Musculoskeletal Imaging Fellowship

The Division of Musculoskeletal Imaging in the Department of Radiology of Duke University Medical Center has a Fellowship position opening starting July 1, 2022. Applicants must meet the requirements for a North Carolina Medical License (including all three steps of the USMLEs).

The Duke Musculoskeletal Imaging fellowship is a one year fellowship designed to provide training applicable to a future career in either academic or private practice radiology. Duke University Health System is a tertiary care center, and we see a diverse array of pathology including sports medicine, orthopedic oncology, rheumatology, spine, and trauma. Diagnostic experience is provided in radiography, CT, and MR imaging. Procedural experience includes arthrography with fluoroscopic assistance (both for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes), and image-guided biopsies, most commonly utilizing CT fluoroscopy. We enjoy a friendly work environment and a collegial relationship with the clinicians of the Department of Orthopedic Surgery as well as the other clinical departments and divisions in the Health System including Sports Medicine, Neurosurgery, Radiation Oncology, Pathology, and Rheumatology. There are seven full time faculty in the Division of Musculoskeletal Imaging, and all are dedicated to resident and fellow education.

Research opportunities abound, and fellows are expected to participate in one or more research projects during their fellowship year. In accordance with this goal, fellows are provided with dedicated academic time during the work week, and are encouraged to present their research findings at a national meeting and to submit a manuscript detailing their work. In addition, the Department of Radiology supports a large residency program, and each musculoskeletal fellow is given opportunities in teaching at both the medical student and resident levels.

One of the highlights of the fellowship program is the conference schedule. Most conferences are weekly or monthly. This includes weekly didactic lectures or hands on demonstrations for the fellows, an interdisciplinary oncologic meeting, orthopedic and radiology grand rounds and journal club. Other conferences occur intermittently including multi-disciplinary conferences where imaging findings are discussed in conjunction with the clinical, surgical, and/or histopathologic findings for each patient. There is a noontime case conference for the residents and fellows.


The United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) is required for entrance into the Duke Musculoskeletal Imaging fellowship program. A North Carolina Medical Board license to practice medicine and credentialing from the Duke University Medical Center are also required prior to beginning training, and it is the responsibility of the accepted applicant to obtain these.
