Welcome to the Georgetown University Hospital Breast Oncology Fellowship
The Georgetown University Hospital Breast Oncology Fellowship Program provides a comprehensive experience using a multidisciplinary approach to patient management.
Breast Fellows rotate between two Washington, D.C. hospitals MedStar Georgetown University Hospital and MedStar Washington Hospital Center. The fellowship permits broad interactions with multiple disciplines that take advantage of the strengths of both institutions.
The program offers a robust, interdisciplinary didactic lecture series, allowing faculty to share the compilation of topics including genetics, risk, latest treatments, technologies, and surgical procedures in the treatment of breast cancer. One day is dedicated to a US Guided Simulation Breast Core Biopsy with the Associate Program Director. Monthly journal clubs supplement the fellows’ clinical and surgical experience.
MedStar Georgetown Cancer Institute has active clinical research programs and participates in cooperative group trials through NRG Oncology, NCI National Clinical Trials Network (NCTN), Alliance, as well as investigator initiated and industry trials. The fellows are encouraged to participate in clinical research and will have a full month dedicated to research.
The Breast Oncology Fellowship is a one-year program and is SSO (Society of Surgical Oncology) accredited. The program accepts two fellows each year.
