Musculoskeletal Radiology

Why UT Southwestern

Recently accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), our one-year program encompasses primary clinical responsibilities at Parkland Memorial Hospital, UT Southwestern University Hospitals, and their clinical outpatient facilities. Fellows receive training in a collegial environment with the program goal of creating independent subspecialty consultants who will be leaders in the field. Fellows are essential to the clinical functioning of MSK Radiology, and facilitate the performance, interpretation, and reporting of advanced imaging studies, as well as the timely performance of a variety of MSK interventional procedures. They also participate as effective consultants in many multidisciplinary conferences, serve as teachers, and engage in various scholarly activities.

Our Mission
