Nancy Major
MD, Orthopedic Radiology
I am professor of musculoskeletal radiology with a focus on sports medicine at University of Colorado Health System. I completed radiology residency at UCSF and musculoskeletal (MSK) fellowship training at Duke University where I remained on faculty for 13 years. While there, I taught residents, fellows, med students as well as an undergraduate class (Radiology of Sports Injuries). I received several teaching awards from the residents, med students and was recognized by the university as having one of the most popular classes on campus.

While at Duke, I was an advocate for female scholar athletes acting as mentor and counselor. I worked closely with young women pursuing careers in medically related fields. I was known on campus to be very supportive of the student athlete. In particular, I worked closely with Duke Men's basketball and women's lacrosse.

I moved on to University of Pennsylvania to become the chief of MSK radiology. After a couple of years, I chose to look more at the business side of practice and worked with a 25 person orthopedic specialty group in Allentown, PA as their radiologist.

I lecture nationally and internationally on all topics of musculoskeletal radiology to residents in training as well as radiologists in practice, and provide background to injuries occasionally for Monday Night Football.

My hobbies include all sports...but currently, I am an avid platform tennis player, as well as tennis, hiking and running. I have a freshman in college who is currently playing lacrosse. I just relocated to Boulder, CO with my husband of two years, my high school and college sweetheart.
