Welcome to the Breast Surgery Fellowship
The Breast Surgery Fellowship places a strong emphasis on breast oncology training, breast imaging, research, and multidisciplinary care. During the fellowship, the fellow evaluates and manages both benign and malignant breast conditions, interacts with specialists from other disciplines, and evaluates and participates in research initiatives.
The fellowship focuses on comprehensive program rotations of breast surgery, medical oncology, radiation oncology, pathology, breast imaging, community outreach, cancer genetics, research, and patient navigation. We offer a 1-year multidisciplinary clinical breast fellowship to candidates who have completed a general surgery residency program, and who are board-eligible/certified general surgeons.
Maimonides Breast Center was founded in 2006 and is the only fully-accredited Breast Center in Brooklyn
