The breast imaging fellowship is a 12-month, non-ACGME accredited program that provides training in all aspects of breast imaging. The program offers structured and supervised training according to the curriculum set forth by the ACR and The Society of Breast Imaging. This will include interpretation of screening and diagnostic mammograms (including tomosynthesis), ultrasound, and breast MRI in addition to all related image-guided interventional procedures and radioactive seed localizations.
The University of Pittsburgh, Magee Womens Hospital offers state-of-the-art comprehensive medical care. Fellows will be exposed to a high volume of interesting and complex cases. The fellow will be educated in epidemiology, diagnosis, pathology, and therapy for breast cancer as well as benign breast pathologies. Fellows will be involved in all clinical aspects of the department and, if desired, research opportunities, including exposure to novel technologies. Trainees will participate in a weekly multidisciplinary tumor board conference and will have weekly didactic multidisciplinary lectures.
The graduating fellow will be an expert in image interpretation and image guided biopsies, as well as have the communication skills to provide compassionate patient care.
The breast imaging fellowship participates in the match process. The Magee Womens Hospital Breast Imaging fellowship is new for the 2020 match.
