The Musculoskeletal (MSK) Radiology Fellowship at the State University of New York at Stony Brook is a one year full-time closely supervised training program at a designated Level 1 Trauma Center. This program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). Currently, there is one fellow per year. The curriculum has been developed to build upon the knowledge and skills learned during residency. The overall goal is for the fellow to become proficient in musculoskeletal radiology and procedures as well as adopt life long learning and self assessment skills. The fellow is able to pursue future positions in either an academic or private practice setting.
During this time period, the fellow is exposed to imaging and procedures as they apply to the musculoskeletal system with expected graduated proficiency to the level of a subspecialist. The rotations and curriculum have been instituted to include clinical, technical-hands on experience, didactic teaching, as well as scholarly activity/research. The six competencies set forth by the ACGME are addressed and incorporated into the rotational goals and objectives.
The rotations include:
Active participation is expected in the following areas:
Rotations are scheduled in half
day and /or full day blocks. Some
rotations and cases are concurrent to assure adequate exposure and involvement
in interesting or more infrequent cases. This method also more realistically
simulates what is expected of a practicing radiologist after training.
The program has been structured and organized based on the ACGME Program requirements, specific objectives and the interpretation of the ACGME general competencies.
Overall goals of the program are to facilitate fellow learning with demonstration of proficiency in Musculoskeletal (MSK) Radiology and to adopt life long learning and self assessment skills. To this end the fellow will:
The Program Curriculum (inclusive of clinical, technical skills, didactic component, knowledge based curriculum/ syllabus, fellow prepared teaching and scholarly activity/research) incorporates the 6 competencies with teaching and assessment methods. Outcome assessments are utilized for both fellow and program improvement.
The Program is organized as follows:
This one year curriculum includes the following basic divisions/rotations:
There is exposure to Nuclear Radiology (to include DEXA) - 5 days and bone pathology via conferences and tumor board.
One half day per week is considered protected time for research and scholarly activity. Five additional days are allotted for elective time with the approval of the Program Director.
