The physician in training will gain experience in radiography, CT, MRI, ultrasound, and image guided MSK interventional procedures.

Learning Objectives:

To aid the medical student in meeting the above mentioned objectives, the student will participate in all read outs with the MSK faculty, attend inter-disciplinary conferences such as Sports Medicine/Orthopedics, Rheumatology, and Sarcoma Conferences, and review prepared teaching materials for self-study or one-on-one with an attending. In addition to observing image guided procedures, medical students will be present during the decision-making process, planning, and management of patients.

An active level of participation is expected. The student can apply their knowledge of clinical skills in history taking, physical exam, and laboratory findings to imaging and aid and advance their life-long learning.
