The Steadman Philippon Research Institute in conjunction with the Steadman Clinic, both in Vail, Colorado, is accepting applications for a one-year sports medicine MR imaging clinical research fellowship, beginning August 1, 2015 and 2016, utilizing a state of the art 3T MRI system. We are seeking a qualified and motivated radiologist with strong interest in musculoskeletal imaging and specifically sports MRI.
The Institute’s clinical database includes every patient seen at the Clinic, and the Institute and Clinic are world-renown leaders in orthopaedic sports care and evidence-based medicine and research.
The Clinic doctors care for elite and recreational athletes, and they specialize in knee, shoulder, hip, ankle/foot, elbow, and hand/wrist injuries and perform about 5,000 surgical procedures annually. The Clinic and Institute host educational and scientific meetings, visiting scholars and surgeons, and guest lecturers from around the world.
The Sports MRI Fellow will read and review clinical patient MRI exams with our MSK MRI staff with 20 years experience in sports medicine MRI; assist in developing and validating sports medicine MRI protocols and scoring systems and collecting imaging data for incorporation with the clinical and operative data in the Institute’s database; and work with the orthopaedic sports medicine surgeons and researchers of the Institute and Clinic. The Fellow will experience unparalleled clinical correlation of patient MRI findings with physical exam in the Clinic and operative findings in the Operating Room. The Fellow’s primary responsibility will be the clinical imaging research, with correlation of imaging with clinical and operative findings and patient outcomes, and writing papers for the peer-reviewed literature.
