Selection of applicants will be supervised by the Program Director, with the consultation of other faculty members in the division. Applicants must have an MD or DO degree from an accredited institution, completed an ACGME-accredited residency in diagnostic radiology and must be eligible for board certification or certified by the American Board of Radiology. Applicants must also be eligible for licensure by the State Medical Board of Ohio.

Two fellows are accepted each year.

If you are interested in applying to the MSK program, please submit the following materials via email to the fellowship coordinator, Rose Alden, via email at  

  • Completed Fellowship Application
  • Current CV
  • Personal statement including goals and professional plans
  • Three letters of recommendation including a letter from the director of your residency program. Letters of recommendation must be less than six months old.
  • Copies of USMLE or COMLEX transcripts (Steps 1, 2, and 3 are required prior to beginning fellowship)     
  • Photo (optional)

Selected candidates will be invited for a personal interview with the Program Director, other members of the section, and the current fellows.

Please note, the MSK Fellowship participates in the NRMP Match, therefore interested fellows must also apply for the NRMP Match.

In compliance with the NRMP Match requirements, applications will be accepted after October 1, and interviews will be conducted from beginning December to end of March. Match day is in June.

International Medical Graduates

International Medical Graduates (IMGs) interested in applying to our program must register with the National Match (if applicable). Foreign applicants must be legally able to work in the U.S., or eligible to obtain work authorization. The University of Cincinnati Medical Center sponsors J-1 visas only for ACGME-accredited programs. We are unable to sponsor J-1 visas of J-1 waivers for our non-ACGME accredited fellowships.

Individuals must have graduated from medical school within the past five years, completed an ACGME-accredited four-year residency in diagnostic radiology, be board certified or board eligible by the American Board of Radiology, must have passed all steps of the USMLE (including Step 3) and possess a permanently validated ECFMG certificate. The ECFMG certificate must be valid at the start of fellowship or the fellow forfeits his/her position in the program. A valid Ohio medical license or training certificate must be obtained prior to start of training.

Fellows are selected on the basis of their medical training, general and academic achievements, and personal qualities. No preference is given to any particular medical school or geographic area, nor is race, sex, or national origin a consideration.

In addition to the documents listed above, IMGs must also include in their application:

  • Verification of ECFMG certification and photocopies of all USMLE exam results
  • Copy of medical diploma (translation required)
  • Medical School transcript
  • Copies of previous GME experience (translation required)
