Breast Imaging Fellowship at The Mount Sinai Hospital

Our goal is to train our fellows to provide patient care through safe, efficient, appropriately utilized, quality-controlled radiology techniques. We provide fellows with an organized, comprehensive, supervised, full-time educational experience in Breast Imaging including breast ultrasounds, breast MRI, and mammography at the renowed Mount Sinai Dubin Breast Center. We emphasize digital breast tomosynthesis and use 1.5 and 3.0T magnets for breast MRIs. Fellows become proficient with wire and radioactive seed localizations, stereotactic biopsy, ultrasound procedures, and MRI procedures.

As a fellow, you will interact with patients and participate in multidisciplinary breast conference and both resident and medical student education.

Our program is not accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and we offer two fellowship positions each year.

Interviews will be conducted in accordance to SCARD policy. Applications can be sent by email starting on November 1, 2023

Fellows are integrally involved with multiple multidisciplinary conferences every week, giving them the opportunity to become comfortable with presenting cases clearly and effectively, preparing them for their careers after graduation. A series of didactic lectures are provided for the breast imaging, breast surgery, and breast pathology fellows.
