The MSK Fellowship at UNMC is designed to provide the graduate of a diagnostic radiology residency with additional subspecialty training and expertise in musculoskeletal imaging and image-guided procedures of the extremities.
Our fellowship program will be participating in the Match to be held in 2019. We will begin accepting applications after October 1, 2018 for the 2020-2021 academic year. Interviews will begin after November 25, 2018. To apply for the MSK Fellowship complete the common application form, click here. Then submit all documentation to Tina Hunter, contact information below.
We currently have six full-time fellowship trained faculty in the MSK division. Our practice consists of a variety of CT and MRI exams, radiographs, and MSK ultrasound. We typically perform 2-4 image guided injection/aspiration procedures per day. We have state-of-the art equipment with recent purchases of four new dual energy GE Revolution CT scanners, two Phillips 1.5T MRI scanners and two 3.0T Phillips MRI scanners.
Our primary hospital is Nebraska Medicine, a 600 bed, level I trauma center. We also provide interpretations for a variety of outpatient imaging facilities in the Omaha area. We are a tertiary referral center for bone and soft tissue tumors with an orthopedic oncologist on staff at Nebraska Medicine. We work closely with the Rheumatology Service and Orthopedic Surgeons, including participation in monthly interdisciplinary conferences. We also provide interpretations for several athletic programs in the area, including UNL Huskers, Creighton University Bluejays and UNO Mavericks.
Fellows are appointed to the faculty as clinical instructors and will participate in all areas of musculoskeletal radiology. All CT and MRI exams are reviewed with staff while radiograph interpretation can be performed independently or with staff review. The fellow will also participate in resident education by supervising procedures, reviewing radiographs and presenting 3 resident conferences during the twelve-month fellowship. There are opportunities for research and a stipend for education conferences is provided. Up to three months of elective time can be requested to rotate through other subspecialty areas.
