About University of Rochester
The Musculoskeletal Radiology fellowship program’s primary mission is to provide a well rounded training experience to prepare our fellows to become leaders in academic and clinical radiology. Our fellows are trained to be proficient in all aspects of musculoskeletal imaging including MRI, CT, radiographs, and procedures including arthrograms and bone biopsies. The University of Rochester is a tertiary care center and level I trauma center with a diverse array of pathology including sports medicine, orthopedic oncology, rheumatology, spine and trauma. Academic pursuits will be fostered with multidisciplinary conferences, cutting edge technology and a faculty devoted toward innovative research projects.
Our faculty members are dedicated professionals, with many at the top of their profession. And, it’s probably no coincidence that approximately 70% have ties to URMC by either obtaining their medical degree or completing their internship, residency or fellowship here.
In Musculoskeletal radiology we have 6 faculty members including 4 members of the Society of Skeletal Radiology and 1 member of the International Skeletal Society.
