Breast Imaging Fellowship

The UTMB Breast Imaging Fellowship provides one year of multidimensional advanced training to qualified applicants seeking specialized knowledge in Breast Imaging. We are an ACR accredited center of excellence (Mammogram, Ultrasound and MRI), and since its inception in 2003, the fellowship program has graduated mammographers to excellent academic and private practice positions (see recent fellowship placements below).

The breast imaging fellows are trained in the state of the art equipment with the aim to produce proficient breast radiologists including:

  • Tomosynthesis and Tomosynthesis guided biopsies
  • 2D Digital screening and Diagnostic Mammography
  • Ultrasound and Ultrasound guided biopsies
  • Prone Stereotactic machine guided biopsy
  • 3T MRI and MRI guided biopsies
  • Wire/Seed Localizations
  • Galactography

Ample research opportunity exists and is encouraged, with past fellows successfully publishing articles in journals and presenting at national meetings.

Our fellowship program consists of one fellow who divides their time interpreting screening and diagnostic mammograms, breast ultrasounds, MRI's, and performing breast interventional procedures under the supervision of three full-time Breast Imaging Faculty. The fellow is also responsible for preparing and presenting breast malignancy cases for the multidisciplinary breast conferences.

Interested applicants must submit the Universal Fellowship Application and all supporting documents. The Universal Fellowship Application is located on the The Association of Program Directors in Radiology (APDR) website (http://www.apdr.org/) under the trainees/fellowship information tab. The application must include three letters of recommendation, one from the residency program director.
