Fellowship Education

The Musculoskeletal Radiology Fellowship at Hospital for Special Surgery is ACGME accredited since 2009 and is the oldest musculoskeletal radiology fellowship program in the country, in existence since 1969. Over 100 Fellows have graduated from our program and can attest to the commitment to train future musculoskeletal radiologists.

All of the radiology faculty are committed to education and are locally, nationally and internationally known and regularly participate in both intra- and inter-departmental conferences. They are consistently invited participants to present original research at formal forums and as visiting professors.  The Radiologist-in-Chief and the Chiefs of all the major modality divisions are recognized globally in the radiology, orthopaedic and rheumatologic communities for their innovative research, imaging expertise and their commitment to teaching.

Hospital for Special Surgery is dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of orthopaedic and rheumatologic conditions. Approximately 250,000 musculoskeletal imaging examinations are performed annually. There is a broad patient mix with referring physicians from sports medicine, arthroplasty, rheumatology, pediatrics and orthopaedic spine specialties.

The Department of Radiology & Imaging at Hospital for Special Surgery performs approximately 183,000 musculoskeletal x-rays, 14,000 musculoskeletal ultrasound examinations, including ultrasound-guided procedures, 10,000 special procedures, 8000 CTs and 20,000 musculoskeletal MRI examinations annually.  In addition to state of the art computed radiography (CR) and digital radiography (DR) conventional equipment, there are two state of the art Philips CT scanners (64 and 16 slice with 3D reformatting capabilities) and ten GE high field strength 3T and 1.5T MR units.
