It will expose the trainee to all aspects of breast imaging under the supervision of assigned mentors.
The programme offers an intensive, individualised instruction in breast imaging interpretation and clinical research methodology. It includes training in breast imaging for screening, diagnosis and intervention, incorporating daily image interpretation of mammography, ultrasound and MRI studies; biopsy onset action and follow-up; and quality control in a busy, state-of-the-art breast center. During the training period, the radiologist will be assigned a research mentor and a clinical mentor, and will receive intensive one-on-one instruction in the use of the Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS) lexicon. In addition, trainees work on a clinical research project. They are additionally helped to prepare an original research manuscript for publication and are mentored in grantsmanship to support continued research upon their return home.
Duration and funding:
The training will start in the third quarter of 2012 and last for six months, finishing in 2013.
The successful fellow will receive a grant by MSKCC, funded by the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. The training is offered for free.
