Penn State Breast Center, a state-of-the-art facility, sees hundreds of new breast cancers and performs tens of thousands of breast imaging studies each year. The fellowship offers 12 months of comprehensive training including:

  • Diagnostic breast ultrasound and intervention
  • Diagnostic MRI and MRI-guided intervention
  • Needle localizations and Savi Scout (wireless) localizations

Fellows will participate in multidisciplinary conferences, radiology-pathology review conference and monthly journal club. There is ample opportunity for involvement in clinical research, and participation in a scholarly project is strongly encouraged. In addition, the fellowship offers dedicated mini rotations in breast surgery, medical and radiation oncology, plastic surgery, genetics and high-risk counseling.

Six dedicated breast radiology faculty perform all imaging and minimally invasive biopsies as a part of an integrated, collaborative practice with breast surgery and oncology colleagues.
