Graduate medical education in radiology at Mayo Clinic

Becoming a proficient musculoskeletal radiologist requires more detailed knowledge of anatomy, disease processes, pathophysiology, and imaging techniques than most radiologists are able to obtain in four years of general residency training. The Musculoskeletal Imaging Fellowship at Mayo Clinic in Phoenix, Arizona, is a one-year program that teaches radiologists how to plan, perform, and interpret studies and procedures at a subspecialty level, preparing you to bring musculoskeletal-imaging expertise to either an academic or subspecialized private practice.

Highlights of this program include:

  • Receive advanced training in all aspects of musculoskeletal radiology in both outpatient and inpatient settings
  • Work closely with experts in the imaging and interventional aspects of musculoskeletal radiology
  • Clinical training including rotations in advanced musculoskeletal MRI/CT, bone radiography, and musculoskeletal interventional procedures
  • Up to two four-week blocks of elective time with Mayo Clinic neuroradiologists as well as an opportunity to spend time in pediatric musculoskeletal imaging at Phoenix Children's Hospital
  • Participation in one or more clinical research projects with the musculoskeletal imaging staff
