The University of Pennsylvania Breast fellowship offers a diverse program in the management of breast diseases that will lead to clinical competence in all facets of breast biology. The program is based in the Rena Rowan Breast Center and offers an internationally recognized faculty in treatment of clinical breast diseases with programs in Breast imaging including Breast MRI, Breast Surgery, Medical Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Breast Cancer Genetics, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, and Breast pathology. With large patient volumes the fellow will have available ample opportunity to develop clinical skills necessary for a career in breast surgery. The fellow will develop skills in oncoplastic surgery, skin sparing mastectomy, and sentinel node biopsies. The fellowship program aims to develop future leaders in the management of breast diseases, and the fellowship has built in time for scholarly pursuit with availability of NIH sponsored programs in clinical, translational, and basic research programs with the faculty of the Breast Program at the Abramson Cancer Center at the University of Pennsylvania. The Breast Fellowship is a one year program, accepting two fellows per year.
