The Department of Radiology at Penn State Health/College of Medicine is recruiting for a one year Breast Imaging Fellowship position with a July, 2020 start date. The curriculum is designed to provide the fellow with an in-depth clinical experience in breast imaging and breast disease management.
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:
Screening mammography utilizing digital breast tomosynthesis
Screening breast ultrasound (automated whole breast)
Diagnostic mammography (3D) and Stereotactic (3D) biopsy
Diagnostic breast ultrasound and intervention
Diagnostic MRI and MRI-guided intervention
Needle localizations and Savi Scout (wireless) localizations
Fellows will participate in the weekly 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. The Breast Center was one of the original recipients of the ACR Breast Imaging Center of Excellence Award and has NAPBC certification.
The fellowship is geared toward setting the stage for success, whether the graduate chooses an academic or community practice career.
