Breast Imaging Section Chief
Our program is a combination of intense clinical training, significant research experience (with internationally known scholars available as mentors), and elective experience with Medical Oncology, Surgical Oncology, and Breast Pathology. The fellow will progressively learn to manage a full service breast-imaging center, including interaction with clinical colleagues, as well as gain valuable research experience. This training will provide the fellow comprehensive training for any future endeavors in Breast Imaging.
Diagnostic imaging and interventional modalities including digital mammography, sonography, magnetic resonance imaging, positron emmission mammography, and tomosynthesis are utilized to give a broad clinical training.
Responsibilities also include assisting in resident education and training.
The fellows are actively involved in the weekly Multidisciplinary Breast Conference.
The fellows are invited to attend and present at the Resident Core Lecture Series and will be given priority time to do so. Two mammography sessions per month will be offered at the resident morning or noon conferences.
Radiology Grand Rounds are held monthly with prestigious visiting and local professors, offering the opportunity to meet and learn from leading national authorities on a wide variety of topics.
The fellows will organize monthly journal clubs that are designed to review current literature in the major Diagnostic Radiology Journals.
Intellectual vibrancy and technological innovation are core values of the Department, which are developed through research and collaborative efforts of the clinical faculty and Department Ph.D.s. The fellows are given 12 weeks of dedicated time to participate in a significant research project that has the potential to be published in a major peer reviewed professional journal. Mentoring from experienced faculty members is available.
There are no call duties as part of this fellowship program experience.
