Applying to the Fellowship
Clinical Training Offered
Two positions offered through the musculoskeletal fellowship program for a duration of 12 months.
The University of Maryland Medical System (UMMS) delivers comprehensive health care services through a network of 13 affiliated hospitals. MSK fellows provide clinical care for several UMMS hospitals, associated imaging centers and the Baltimore VA Medical Center. MSK radiology fellowship training is based at the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC), the flagship academic medical center of UMMS. UMMC is located in downtown Baltimore on the campus of the University of Maryland Baltimore, a short walking distance from Baltimore's historic Inner Harbor and Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
MSK fellows at UMMC receive a well-rounded education with training in trauma (home of the world renowned R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center), sports medicine (strong UM Orthopaedic department and team physicians for the Big Ten Conference UM Terrapins college sports teams), cancer (top tier cancer center: UM Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum Comprehensive Cancer Center), rheumatology, and bread-and-butter inpatient and outpatient MSK radiology for adults and children.
Fellows participate in image-guided biopsy and tumor board, in support of UMMC's dedicated orthopaedic oncology service. MSK fellows also receive training in image-guided diagnostic/therapeutic joint procedures and diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound. Primary diagnostic imaging modalities include state-of-the-art MRI (3.0 T and 1.5 T), CT (includes spectral), x-ray, and fluoroscopy, with additional exposure to PET/MRI, PET/CT, and bone densitometry (DXA).
MSK Fellows are bestowed the academic rank of Visiting Instructor by the University of Maryland School of Medicine. Optional research and teaching opportunities are available. Graduates of our MSK radiology fellowship program are well prepared for careers in private practice, academic radiology or federal service (VA medical centers, etc.).
