Our Fellowship Program is designed to take you to an expert level in MSKUS, ensuring unparalleled opportunities for professional growth and remarkable improvements in patient outcomes.

Your journey with us starts with learning fundamental principles of ultrasound and normal sonoanatomy for upper and lower extremities. From there, engaging lectures, hands-on labs, and practical sessions will build your confidence in navigating musculoskeletal anatomy.

Throughout this process, our experienced mentors will provide ongoing guidance and support as you complete 150 Real Patient Study Assessments + state-of-the art online video modules to prepare for the MSKUS Fellowship Exams.

Upon successfully completing the program, you will possess in-depth knowledge of musculoskeletal anatomy and earn the prestigious title, FMSK®. This accomplishment will solidify your expertise in the field and distinguish you as a highly qualified professional.

As diagnostic sonography rapidly becomes the standard of care for visualizing musculoskeletal anatomy, our program positions you as a trailblazer in the healthcare profession!
