“I did a Breast/Body combined fellowship at Montefiore (6 months of each). I loved the fellowship experience and am so grateful for the lifelong skills I obtained there.  After the fellowship, I felt extremely comfortable joining a private practice environment and reading a wide variety of imaging modalities. The volume of cases and variety of cases/pathology at Montefiore as well as the in depth, personalized teaching received by the body attendings is very unique to the fellowship and ensures that the fellows are highly prepared for the real world. The training I received has given me the skills to read cases with confidence and speed. The fellowship environment was nurturing and friendly, but also fostered independence. Highly recommended!”
