Two MSK Fellow openings for 2022-23. The musculoskeletal imaging fellowship at NorthShore University HealthSystem, an academic affiliate of the University of Chicago, is a one-year clinical program.
The fellows will have the opportunity to work closely under the guidance of five musculoskeletal attendings who are the Radiologists for the Chicago Bears. This one-year program in musculoskeletal imaging focuses on MRI, CT, and musculoskeletal ultrasound. Images are interpreted at our large-volume dedicated, state of the art orthopedic hospital in Skokie, Illinois. Approximately 60-120 musculoskeletal MRIs and 15-20 CTs are performed daily from nine hospital/outpatient sites, which include 14 1.5 and 3.0 Tesla MRs, and 14 CT scanners (including a 64-slice volume CT). Additionally, there are 3-6 arthrograms, MSK ultrasounds or other musculoskeletal interventional procedures daily.
MSK fellows will see a wide range of pathology with an emphasis on MRI and sports-related injuries. The fellows will also be involved in the care of elite athletes, such as professional football players and college athletes. Opportunities are also available for clinical and basic research in our 10,000 square foot radiology research facility with 1.5 Tesla and 3.0 Tesla whole-body MR systems. The educational opportunities are enhanced by monthly rheumatology conferences, monthly fellow lectures and journal club.
MSK fellows also participate in the general radiology fellow call pool and have several moonlighting opportunities available.
Applicants must be able to obtain an Illinois permanent license and a DEA license.
