Breast Imaging Fellowship at Mount Sinai Beth Israel

We offer a comprehensive one-year fellowship in breast imaging under the direction of Tamara Fulop, MD. The fellowship provides extensive clinical training in screening, diagnostic, and interventional exams and procedures.

The breast imaging section is responsible for all breast-related examinations, including sonography, magnetic resonance imaging, and interventional procedures. The section is high volume and, therefore, offers the fellow an opportunity to learn about a wide breadth of pathology. Our breast imaging centers contain six full-field digital mammographic units, four dedicated breast ultrasound machines, two prone table stereotactic biopsy units, breast-specific gamma imaging (BSGI) and a breast MRI unit.

The goal of our fellowship is to train individuals in the field of breast imaging, qualifying graduating fellows for either private practice or academic careers. As a fellow, you participate fully in the section’s clinical activities. Under attending supervision, you learn to interpret mammography, breast ultrasound, and breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). You learn to perform all breast-related biopsy procedures, including stereotactic core biopsies, ultrasound guided core biopsies, MRI guided biopsies, ultrasound guided fine needle aspiration, and needle localizations. We have five faculty members in our section, which allows for exposure to a range of styles and approaches.

We augment your education with resident teaching and participation in multidisciplinary conferences, under faculty supervision. Research opportunities are available, and we encourage you to participate in a research project during the course of the year.

Our fellows train at two locations, both in lower Manhattan:

Phillips Ambulatory Care Center
10 Union Square East (between 14th and 15th Streets)

Beth Israel Comprehensive Cancer Center
325 West 15th Street (between 8th and 9th Avenues)
