Musculoskeletal Imaging (MSK) Fellowship

Musculoskeletal Imaging (MSK) Fellowship

Thank you for your interest in UC San Diego Musculoskeletal Imaging (MSK) Fellowship. The MSK fellowship is 12-months in duration and consists of clinical, teaching, and research responsibilities restricted to musculoskeletal imaging at three hospitals: the UC San Diego Medical Center, Thornton Pavilion (UCSD La Jolla), and Veterans Affairs Medical Center. The program is geared toward but not restricted to fellow candidates who are considering a career in academic musculoskeletal imaging, a field that offers excellent opportunities.

At UC San Diego, you will read studies for diverse patient types including children, VA patients, teleradiology clients, and indigent patients. You will work daily with world experts in the field.

The MSK Fellowship offers a valuable year devoted to the study of musculoskeletal imaging along with a balanced program devoted to clinical, teaching, and research activities. Fellows will gain experience in reading all modalities: MRI, computed tomography, and radiographs. In addition, fellows will take part in daily arthrograms, ultrasound, and CT guided procedures at the hospitals.
