The Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging is offering five one-year fellowship positions in Breast Imaging at the UCSF Mt. Zion and Zuckerberg San Francisco General (ZSFG) Avon Comprehensive Breast Care Center in San Francisco, CA.  Fellowship training encompasses all aspects of breast imaging including full-field digital mammography, tomosynthesis, ultrasonography, MRI, and interventional procedures (including lesion localizations, stereotactic- and ultrasound-guided core biopsy and fine-needle aspiration biopsy, cyst aspiration, ductography, MR-guided biopsy and MR-guided needle localizations.). Overall volume is approximately 30,000 examinations per year at two clinical sites, including over 1,000 breast MRIs per year, with a steadily increasing caseload. Fellows share in all clinical activities under the supervision of full-time breast imaging faculty. Fellows work closely with breast surgeons, oncologists, radiation oncologists and pathologists.  They attend weekly multi-disciplinary tumor boards, review slides with pathologists for radiologic-pathologic concordance, and benefit from a dedicated advanced breast imaging fellow lecture series held once or twice a week. Fellows also participate in resident and medical student teaching and are integrated into the breast imaging research program. Depending on level of interest, fellows may choose to design his/her own individual project or collaborate on an ongoing project.
