Expertise in all aspects of MSK imaging is essential.

Expertise in all aspects of musculoskeletal imaging is strongly suggested, including MR, CT, US, and image-guided procedures. The expected candidate will work primarily within musculoskeletal imaging. Knowledge in and willingness to interpret exams in other areas of radiology will be highly valued. This position involves participation in patient care, service, education, and research, although less emphasis is placed on research for those in the HSCP series. Particular emphasis will be placed on an individual's interest in trainee education, breadth of knowledge, and flexibility.
