Cedars-Sinai Medical Center offers an advanced, clinically-based fellowship in musculoskeletal radiology to board-eligible physicians who want to acquire expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders.
The Musculoskeletal Radiology fellowship program is accredited by the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education and is the only musculoskeletal radiology fellowship program in California that has earned the gold standard of ACGME accreditation.
The program director is Joseph Giaconi, MD, a board-certified radiologist subspecialty-trained in musculoskeletal radiology. Thomas Learch, MD and Joseph Robinson, MD are also fellowship-trained musculoskeletal radiologists among our team of 41 imaging physicians.
The S. Mark Imaging Center is a 125,000 square foot facility with 60,000 square feet of clinical and office space, and 15 reading rooms. More than 350,000 procedures are performed in the Imaging Department annually, providing ample volume and pathology with no outside rotations. The program benefits from close relationships with rheumatology, orthopedic surgery, neurosurgery and other surgical specialties on our campus and there are joint conferences within these departments on a regular basis. Our larger patient population, advanced imaging procedures, research opportunities and competitive stipend expose only the surface of why Cedars-Sinai Medical Center remains on the forefront of the most sought after fellowship programs in musculoskeletal radiology.
Candidates typically apply for fellowship opportunities during the third year of diagnostic radiology residency. CVs for the 2014 academic year may be submitted starting July 2012.
We look forward to providing a rewarding educational experience and establishing a foundation for continued professional growth.
