About Ohio State's Musculoskeletal Fellowship

The Musculoskeletal Fellowship is a one-year, non-ACGME-accredited program for radiologists seeking advanced training in diagnostic and interventional musculoskeletal radiology. The curriculum allows for progressive scholarship and experience in all facets of musculoskeletal imaging. The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center possesses robust orthopedic and sports medicine departments providing ample exposure to all varieties of musculoskeletal pathology.

 Two fellows are accepted into the program each academic year.

Core Competencies

Upon completion of the program, fellows will have:

  • Advanced knowledge in imaging principles and physics, including radiation biology and safety
  • Knowledge in radiographic techniques and their indications, including conventional radiography, computed tomography, fluoroscopy, sonography, nuclear scintigraphy and MR imaging
  • An understanding of radiographic, sonographic, scintigraphic and cross-sectional imaging evaluation of musculoskeletal diseases
  • Ability to perform interventional procedures, including CT- and ultrasound image-guided biopsies as well as ultrasound- and fluoroscopically-guided access procedures
  • An understanding of emergency procedures, including their indications and impact

An optional four weeks of elective time is available to fellows if desired.

Graduates of the program are successfully equipped to join either academic or private practice.
