Instructor of Musculoskeletal Imaging 2020-2021
Working Title: Instructor of Musculoskeletal Imaging 2020-2021
Position Type: Teaching and Research Faculty
Department: Department of Radiology
Posting Date: 05-31-2018
The Department of Radiology and Medical Imaging, Musculoskeletal Imaging Division (MSK) at the University of Virginia, seeks candidates to fill multiple Clinical Instructor positions to begin July 1, 2020. This one-year post-graduate training fellowship program focuses on all aspects of MSK imaging. The fellowship includes significant experience with a wide variety of image-guided procedures, including pain management procedures and spine injections, in addition to cross-sectional and plain radiographic diagnostic work. It is expected that each fellow write at least one paper for publication or submit one abstract for presentation at a national meeting during the year.
In addition to the above purely clinical fellowship positions, one position will be a hybrid of MSK/Informatics. The hybrid fellow will asymmetrically divide time between clinical MSK work (~80%) and clinical informatics experience/research (~20%). The ideal candidate for this position is at least entertaining the idea of an academic career (though not required) and has aptitude (though not necessarily experience) in engineering or information technology/systems.
There is a potential option for one or two of the clinical MSK positions to be classified as a Research track position after acceptance of the candidate. The ideal candidate for this track would be one with a strong interest in an academic career. Additional academic time can be provided with an expectation of increased research productivity above the baseline research level expected of all the clinical fellows.
Clinical responsibilities for both of the above types of positions include supervised and graduated levels of unsupervised clinical work, teaching of residents, and research. The Department provides final reads to our ED patients on a 24-7 basis with overnight coverage being provided by our fellows on a rotating basis. Overnight work can be performed from home, and includes subspecialty attending back-up as needed. This program bolsters income in a comfortable environment, while promoting the maintenance and further development of general radiology skills in preparation for boards and practice.

Candidates must have an MD or equivalent and successfully completed a residency in diagnostic radiology at an ACGME accredited institution or successfully completed a diagnostic radiology residency accredited by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC).
