The Breast Imaging Fellowship program at Montefiore is a one-year program providing comprehensive training in all areas of breast imaging.  The fellow is an integral part of the breast imaging radiology team, working with members of the departments of breast surgery, oncology, pathology and other specialties to create the best possible outcome for each patient. 

Fellows are exposed to a broad spectrum of pathology, a high volume of cases, state-of-the-art technology, a friendly work environment and research opportunities.  Fellows will gain expertise in interpreting screening and diagnostic mammography, breast ultrasound and breast MRI. Fellows will become proficient in performing image guided procedures, including stereotactic, ultrasound and MR guided biopsies and needle localizations.

Curriculum

The Breast Imaging Fellowship program combines extensive hands-on experience with comprehensive didactic training and research.  In addition to daily hands-on experience, fellows present cases at the multidisciplinary breast tumor board and participate in teaching residents and medical students.  Fellows are also given the opportunity to take part  in or spearhead ongoing research projects.

Salary and Benefits

Montefiore Medical Center offers a competitive salary and benefits package, including four weeks of vacation and one funded conference week for fellows. Subsidized housing is available close to the Moses Division and in Riverdale. Fellows also receive a daily meal stipend, which may be used at all food stations at Montefiore Medical Center Moses, as well as reduced rates for monthly parking.

Location

Montefiore Medical Center is located in a pleasant residential section of the North Bronx, close to the Westchester border and several major highways. Residents, fellows, and faculty easily commute from Manhattan, Westchester, Connecticut, Rockland County and New Jersey.
