The Department of Radiology at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center offers a one-year fellowship in musculoskeletal imaging. The fellowship is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and available to individuals who have completed an ACGME-accredited residency in Diagnostic Radiology.
The fellowship is designed to produce specialized, academically oriented musculoskeletal radiologists with superb clinical skills. Recently trained fellows have been placed in both academic and private practice positions.
The training program includes experience in all facets of diagnostic and interventional musculoskeletal radiology in the setting of a busy academic medical center. The section has an excellent relationship with the departments of Orthopedic Surgery, Primary Care Sports Medicine, Podiatry, Rheumatology, and Oncology.
