Musculoskeletal Radiology Fellowship

About the Program

The University of Kansas Medical Center offers a non-accredited musculoskeletal (MSK) radiology fellowship program, one year in length beginning on July 1 and ending on June 30.

Our fellows are exposed to the full breadth of MSK imaging and procedures. This includes high-level sports imaging in partnership with the Kansas City Chiefs, Kansas City Royals, and consulting for the KU Jayhawks. As a National Cancer Institute (NCI) designated comprehensive cancer center, we work with our orthopedic and oncology colleagues to provide specialized care to sarcoma patients. We also contribute to busy rheumatology, spine, and trauma practices.

Fellows take part in multiple interdisciplinary conferences including tumor board, sports imaging, and rheumatology case review.

Elective time is given to fellows looking to broaden their training, with the opportunity to rotate through any section with our radiology colleagues.

Fellows are not required to take call. Academic time is given to pursue educational and/or research endeavors.

Applicants

Our fellowship program selects one fellow each year. Applicants must successfully complete an ACGME-accredited Diagnostic Radiology Residency Program and pass all Board examinations from the American Board of Radiologists.  We will be participating in the NRMP match.  The NRMP rank number will be given to you on interview day.
