Musculoskeletal Imaging

UVA Radiology MSK fellowship - fellow and attending examine studies

We participate in the Musculoskeletal Imaging Match program administered by the National Residency Match Program (NRMP).

For qualified physicians interested in advanced training, the Musculoskeletal Radiology Division seeks candidates for several non-tenured clinical instructor positions. Candidates must have an MD or equivalent, and have successfully completed a diagnostic radiology residency at an ACGME-accredited institution.

Our Division

UVA Radiology musculoskeletal faculty and fellow position a patient in the new Orthopedic Outpatient Center

The Division of Musculoskeletal Radiology performs routine and complex diagnostic film reading and procedures relating to the musculoskeletal system. This includes plain films, ultrasound, CT, MRI, arthrography, biopsies of bone and peripheral soft tissue lesions, nerve blocks, epidurals, and joint injections for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes.

Our physicians work closely with other departments within UVA Health such as Sports Medicine, Orthopedics, Rheumatology, Oncology, Pathology and others. Consultative services are also provided for especially complex cases to determine the imaging strategy best suited for each situation.

Recognizing the personal dedication required to pursue post-graduate fellowship training, we are committed to helping each individual further their expertise in utilizing imaging technologies to diagnose and treat disease.

Fellow Testimonials

“I’ve had a great year.  It’s been a very well rounded fellowship with great exposure to all modalities including plenty of MRI, US, and procedures. The MSK division is truly filled with great people.”

“The 24/7 in house moonlighting is really amazing and I think sets the fellowship apart from others.  It’s a great way to maintain skills, earn extra money, and reflects well on the interview trail regardless if you are heading into academics or private practice.”

“Charlottesville is a great town with a lot of activities for young professionals and families.”

“One of the most well-rounded fellowships with excellent instruction in MRI, diagnostic MSK ultrasound, and image-guided bone and soft-tissue procedures.”

“The new 24/7 program allows you to maintain your general radiology skills, has a very manageable workload, and provides significant extra compensation over the course of the year.”
