Changing Medicine. Transforming Lives.

Make a difference—enrich your life and make a lasting impact in the community. MSU Radiology, a part of the Colleges of Osteopathic and Human Medicine at Michigan State University (MSU), offers you the opportunity to work in an expanding academic medical group, while being part of one of the Top 100 universities in the world. It’s what makes working for MSU Health Programs so rewarding: You can help change the future of health care and find opportunities for professional growth and career advancement.

The MSU Department of Radiology strives to become a nationally and internationally acclaimed department by providing access to the highest quality medical care in our patient-centered environment, training future generations of highly skilled and compassionate physicians, advancing medical knowledge through state-of-the-art research, while meeting the wellness needs of our population through community outreach. A flagship department of the Colleges of Osteopathic and Human Medicine, Radiology supports several University missions and is home to over 60 faculty and academic staff and more than 270 clinical and adjunct faculty.
Already a leader in medical research, MSU is at the forefront of biomedical discoveries focusing on translating new therapies and imaging agents from bench discoveries to patients. Radiology faculty are engaged in a broad spectrum of cutting-edge imaging research. Ongoing investigations integrate advanced imaging technologies (multinuclear MRI and MR Spectroscopy, CT, PET-CT, cellular and molecular imaging) with important biosciences (regenerative medicine, physiology, biomechanics, neuroscience, cardiology, sports medicine, and nutrition) to create a unique research environment.

The Department has world-class research imaging systems housed either in the Radiology Building (3.0T MRI) or the Biomedical and Physical Sciences Building (7.0T and 9.4T pre-clinical MRI, pre-clinical micro-CT). Interdisciplinary research programs offer numerous collaborative and educational opportunities, not only for faculty, but for all students, from undergraduates to postdoctoral research associates, including medical students, residents, and fellows.

MSU has been awarded a $6.7 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to build a new facility to develop new imaging agents and treatments for diseases, including cancer, that afflict both humans and large animals.
