Alternatively, two six-month positions may be arranged (July-December and January-June) for eligible candidates. The fellowship is designed to enhance an individual's skills in a multitude of techniques related to breast imaging, preparing the candidate for a successful career in the academic or private practice setting. Assignment to the clinical rotations includes interpretation of cases, supervision of residents, performance of procedures, and preparation for multiple interdisciplinary conferences.
