Breast Surgery Fellowship

The modern management of breast disease requires an in-depth knowledge of not only surgery, but breast imaging, image-directed biopsy techniques, pathology, radiation oncology and medical oncology. The non-accredited Breast Surgery Fellowship enhances the basic knowledge of the management of breast disease acquired by a general surgical trainee, particularly in the non-surgical disciplines. Additionally, the fellowship is designed to be a multidisciplinary experience and provides exposure to medical oncology, breast imaging, pathology, genetics and radiation oncology in addition to six months on the surgical services. Successful completion of a five-year accredited program in general surgery is a prerequisite. The breast fellowship will enable the resident to acquire an advanced body of knowledge and level of skill in the management of breast disease in order to assume a leadership role in teaching and research in the field.

How to Apply

You must submit two applications:

Prospective fellows must successfully complete a residency in general surgery and be board-eligible in general surgery and a U.S. citizen or permanent resident. Applicants from outside the United States must have passed the USMLE, FMGEMS, TOEFL or FLEX and be able to secure a medical license from the State of Illinois.
