Thank you for your interest in our ACGME-accredited fellowship in Musculoskeletal Radiology at the University of Kentucky. Our Department offers an intensive one-year program to qualified radiologists seeking subspecialty training in this area. One position is offered each year. The program will include all aspects of clinical musculoskeletal care, including extensive training in sports medicine MRI, musculoskeletal CT, nuclear medicine imaging, musculoskeletal ultrasound and intervention.
At UK, the Musculoskeletal Division has a close working relationship with the Orthopedic Surgery and Sports Medicine Department, Orthopedic Oncology, and the Division of Rheumatology within the Department of Internal Medicine. There are dedicated monthly interdepartmental conferences with Sports Medicine, Orthopedic Oncology, and Rheumatology as well as conferences with the Radiology Department where musculoskeletal imaging is stressed.
Members of the section are actively involved in teaching programs at the medical student, resident, and postgraduate levels. We participate in national meetings, in particular the Society of Skeletal Radiology (SSR). There will be opportunities for research and teaching in musculoskeletal radiology, and musculoskeletal fellows will be encouraged and supported in the development of their academic interests. Fellows are expected to participate with the faculty in the ongoing education of medical students and diagnostic radiology residents. Noon conference lectures are given by the musculoskeletal fellow for the radiology residents.
The Musculoskeletal Radiology Fellowship will participate in the National Resident Match Program (NRMP) for the July 1, 2023 appointment year and is open to candidates who have completed an ACGME-accrediated diagnostic radiology residency and are American Board of Radiology (ABR) eligible. Medical licensure in the state of Kentucky is also required. We will begin accepting applications on August 1, 2021. Interviews will be held between November 1, 2021 and March 31, 2022.
