NEW MSK radiology fellowships with Dr. Tirman:

UPCOMING ONLINE Sports Injuries MRI Fellowship - Upper extremity on dates 5 - 7 Feb 2024, click here for more info!

UPCOMING ONSITE Musculoskeletal Imaging - Wrist, Hand and Elbow MRI Fellowship on dates 6 - 8 May 2024 click here for more info! & ONSITE Musculoskeletal Imaging - Shoulder MRI Fellowship on dates 13 - 15 May 2024, click here for more info!

Radiologists who would like to become more confident with the interpretation of Imaging of Sport Injuries will find the fellowship useful.

This fellowship, which provides basic and early advanced knowledge, will give participants an overview of the common and less common presentation of Sports Injuries, as well as which imaging modality is best suited to image with, as well as to get to the correct diagnosis. Shoulder, elbow, wrist, pelvic and groin, knee, foot, ankle, and other injuries will be examined.

Each module starts with a lecture. After the lecture you will be challenged with practicing on real anonymised key cases from the TMC Academy teaching file, followed by a group discussion of the cases.

TMC Academy fellowships are held in a virtual classroom environment on Zoom. Participants are encouraged to engage in discussions making use of their camera and microphone in order to recreate the face-to-face experience.

Online sessions are recorded so that participants can review on their own time following the training.

In this small group environment among your peers, you are free to ask questions, make mistakes, and learn together with the support of the radiologist mentor.

This fellowship is organised by TMC Academy, an EACCME Trusted Provider.


"Vast array of topics relevant for an MSK radiologist. Well delivered by Dr de Villiers."
Dr. C. Galea, Radiologist, United Kingdom (Fellow, Apr 2022)

"This course was very informative, I learnt a lot. It improved my approach to imaging of sports injuries. The cases provided have great pathology and a lot of classic sport injuries."
Dr. Nompumelelo Mlambo, Diagnostic Radiologist, Greys Hospital in South Africa(Fellow, Apr 2022)

"Richard is a great teacher so if you are interested in MSK I strongly recommend this course."
Radiologist, Sweden (Fellow, Apr 2022)

"I am a previous course participant. I had attended my first course in Gothenburg 2015, which motivated me later on to do my comprehensive MSK fellowship. I believe the TMC is providing a very good opportunity for those who are interested in upgrading their knowledge and promoting their career."
Dr. Hussein Mohamed Hussein, MD-MSK-Radiologist, Kuwait Medical International, Kuwait (Fellow, Apr 2022)

"I really liked the cases and the way they were presented, showing us a systematic approach to MRI report. Informative, practical, and very useful for practice."
Dr. Henry Bartlett, Radiologist, Mossel Bay Radiology (Fellow, Nov 2021)
