Program Description

The San Antonio Uniformed Services Health Education Consortium Musculoskeletal Radiology Fellowship is one year of intensive training and experience in the subspecialty of musculoskeletal imaging. The program was initiated in 2013 with the goal of training exceptional musculoskeletal radiologists who meet the unique deployed and in-garrison needs of DOD musculoskeletal radiology.  Training is composed of supervised image interpretation of both inpatient and outpatient radiographs, ultrasounds, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scans, and Computed Tomography (CT) scans.  Imaging volumes rival most civilian fellowship programs, and exam complexity runs the gamut from routine sports injuries to complex traumatic and orthopedic oncology imaging.  The fellowship also provides ample experience in image guided diagnostic/therapeutic musculoskeletal procedures ranging from joint and tendon sheath injections to bone and soft tissue biopsies and image-guided lesion ablation procedures. Injuries and conditions unique to the military are emphasized including diagnosis and disposition of stress injuries and field evaluation of musculoskeletal injuries with ultrasound.

The fellow is immersed in a multi-disciplinary environment with the expectation of developing collaborative skills and leading multidisciplinary teams. The fellowship also exposes the fellow to a rich scholarly experience with the expectation of presenting at a national meeting during the mid to latter half of the fellowship. The fellow will also work with a mentor to plan, develop, and implement a department level quality improvement project. The fellow is expected to develop teaching skills in working daily with residents, medical students, and imaging technologists inside and outside the radiology department. Finally, developing an identity as a military health care provider and officer is emphasized including attention to military readiness status.
