Breast Imaging Fellowship
The UT Southwestern Medical Center Breast Imaging Fellowship is a year-long intensive training program in the Diagnostic Radiology Subspecialty of Breast Imaging.
The training includes clinical rotations at the UT Southwestern Center for Breast Care and the Parkland Comprehensive Breast Center, plus electives in research and other breast disciplines including pathology, surgical oncology, and medical oncology. Both facilities are full-service breast centers with state-of-the-art screening, diagnostic, and interventional equipment, including on-site MRI.
Three one-year fellowships are offered in Breast Imaging each year.
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, and gain valuable research experience. This training will also provide comprehensive training for any future endeavors in breast imaging.
Diagnostic imaging modalities (including digital mammography, sonography, magnetic resonance imaging, positron emission mammography, and tomosynthesis) are utilized combined with standard and cutting-edge interventional procedures such as seed localizations and tomosynthesis guided procedures, to offer a broad clinical 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 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 a monthly Journal Club that is designed to review current literature in the major diagnostic radiology journals. Additionally, fellows have the opportunity to participate in bimonthly Breast Biopsy Review Conference and a monthly Radiology-Pathology Breast Conference.
Intellectual vibrancy and technological innovation are core values of the Department. Breast Imaging Fellows receive 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.
