The Department of Radiology at the University of Pennsylvania offers a one-year ACGME accredited fellowship in musculoskeletal imaging. Three fellows are selected each year.

Fellows will receive training in the interpretation of musculoskeletal MRI, radiographs, CT, and DXA. Hands on training in diagnostic and interventional ultrasound, arthrography, and image guided bone and soft tissue biopsy of the pelvis and the extremities is also given. in addition to weekly dedicated Fellow Conference and the Interesting Case Conference, numerous interdisciplinary conferences are on offer. These include weekly Sarcoma conference, various monthly conferences with Orthopedic Surgery, bimonthly conference with Rheumatology, and monthly combined conference with the Radiology Department at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP).

Fellows are responsible for sharing consultations with emergency room personnel and referring clinicians. Fellows are expected to teach the residents, medical students, and other reading room visitors that rotate on musculoskeletal clinical services and also give case based and/or didactic presentations to co-fellows, residents and medical students.

Each fellow will also participate in evening and weekend MSK call responsibilities which are both shared with and supervised by MSK staff members. Fellows are also required to spend 7 nights on a night float rotation in the Emergency Department. In addition, fellows gain exposure in pediatric MSK at CHOP as well as body MRI at HUP as part of regular rotation.

There is required involvement in a scholarly project that is intended to be completed or nearly completed by the end of the year. To this end, dedicated academic time and workspace are provided.
