Breast and Women’s Imaging Fellowship
The Breast and Women’s Imaging non-ACGME Fellowship offers four full-time positions to qualified applicants. The program has been in existence since 1992 and has evolved to include the latest in technological advances including opportunities for research. The breast imaging rotation comprises nine months of the year and will afford the candidate the knowledge and experience to become an expert, well-trained individual in screening and diagnostic mammography, tomosynthesis, ultrasound, procedures (including ultrasound biopsies, stereotactic prone and upright biopsies and MRI guided biopsies), radioactive seed localization, contrast-enhanced mammography (CEM) and MRI. State-of-the-art equipment is utilized with plans for 3T installation and universal use of Clarity HD tomosynthesis. The high volume and well-trained interdisciplinary teams further enhance the program. Didactic multidisciplinary weekly breast and tumor board conferences are offered.
The remainder of the year (three months) is spent in Women’s Imaging. Weekly tumor board multidisciplinary and biweekly educational conferences are offered. This allows the fellow to have a widened view of the extent of breast cancer and education in gynecological malignancies for a more complete experience in Women’s Imaging. Elective and research opportunities exist for those interested. Combined, this program offers superb training for the focused education of the Breast and/or Women’s Imager.
