The Breast Imaging Fellowship is a one-year (12-month), non-ACGME-accredited program that admits one fellow per year. The program follows the Breast Imaging and Intervention curriculum in accordance with the recommendations from the Society of Breast Imaging.
The Breast Imaging Fellowship at Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center is designed to provide the fellow with an in-depth clinical experience in breast imaging and breast disease management. Our organization sees more than 280 new breast cancers per year and performs more than 21,500 breast imaging studies, including 675 breast MR examinations, 100 MR guided biopsies, 2,200 breast ultrasound examinations, 230 stereotactic biopsies, 100 ultrasound guided biopsies and 190 needle localizations. Our fellows work closely with our breast imaging faculty, our technologists, and our oncologists and surgeons. Participation in the weekly multidisciplinary breast management conference is required.
Breast imaging fellows participate in general radiology coverage in the Emergency Department one day per week and share call responsibilities with general radiology faculty.
Our section is very cohesive and patient-focused.
The Breast Imaging Fellowship is participating in the National Resident Matching Program sponsored by the Society of Breast Imaging.
Applicants will be required to pay the $75 registration fee to participate in the match.
We require three letters of recommendation.
