Fellowships in Breast Imaging
For those interested in advanced training, the offers qualified physicians a one year non-tenured breast imaging instructorship. Candidates must have an MD or equivalent and successfully completed a residency in diagnostic radiology at an ACGME accredited institution.
Fellows participate in conducting leading-edge breast imaging research. The division recently received a $5.5 million grant from the Department of Defense to develop an innovative new breast cancer screening model. In the next five to six years, this innovative new model is expected to become the national standard in breast cancer screening.
Our post-graduate fellowship program focuses on all aspects of breast imaging, including clinical consultation, screening and diagnostic mammography, breast ultrasound, breast MRI, galactography, and image-guided interventional procedures; core biopsies are performed under ultrasound, stereotactic, and MRI guidance. In addition to gaining further expertise in this subspecialty, fellows will serve as junior faculty, playing a significant role in resident education. More >
Our faculty currently includes Dr. Jennifer Harvey (Program Director), Dr. Brandi Nicholson, Dr. Heather Peppard, and Dr. Carrie Rochman each of whom are passionate teachers with a methodical, organized approach to both fellow and resident education. Recognizing the personal commitment required to pursue this extended training, they are firmly committed to helping each fellow excel in the breast imaging field and play a significant role in the early detection of breast cancer.
