Musculoskeletal Imaging Fellowship

The USF Musculoskeletal Fellowship Program currently has 2 openings for the July 1, 2022 start date. Eligible and interested candidates should send ALL required documents to Tracy Colley tcolley@usf.edu. Information pertaining to the required application documents are listed below.

The University of South Florida Department of Radiology offers a 1-year PGY-6 Musculoskeletal Imaging Fellowship. We accept 3 fellows per year. We participate in the NRMP match and will follow the match participation guidelines provided by the Society of Skeletal Radiology. We will begin accepting application based on the SSR timeline and anticipate offering one interview a month beginning early December through May.


The Musculoskeletal Imaging Fellowship focuses on establishing clinical expertise in advanced orthopedic imaging. To achieve this objective, the program provides fellows with exposure to magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography, and digital radiography. There are extensive opportunities to perform injections for both therapeutic and diagnostic applications in the spine and joints. 

During this 1-year fellowship program, fellows will learn how to acquire and to interpret computed tomography, magnetic resonance, and radiographic imaging examinations of the extremities. Fellows will learn appropriateness criteria for each orthopedic imaging modality and serve as an advisor to referring clinicians on appropriate imaging modalities based on patient pathology. Fellows will formulate appropriate differential diagnoses and management recommendations for various orthopedic pathologies.

The program provides fellows with ample opportunities to participate in interdepartmental conferences including orthopedic surgery, sports medicine, and rheumatology. These conferences enhance knowledge of the various clinical problems faced by clinicians, and form a basis for helping to guide imaging workup of such problems. Fellows play an active role in radiology resident education.
