The Department of Surgery at Emory University School of Medicine is looking for a qualified Medical Doctor who is interested in advanced breast / surgical oncology training. Applicants of the 2017 Surgical Fellowship Match must submit job applications using the Emory Careers Website. The Emory University Fellowship programs were created to foster the development of high quality fellowships included but not limited to General/GI, Oncology, Transplant, Plastics, Trauma/Surgical Care, and Cardiothoracic Surgery. This is a non-ACGME fellowship position overseen by Cletus Arciero, MD.
The mission of the Society of Surgical Oncology-approved, one-year Emory Breast Oncology Fellowship is to teach evidence-based clinical care, encourage inquiry with a research-focused approach, develop leadership skills for future career opportunities and growth, and produce graduates that will become leaders in academic breast surgery and continue the international excellence that has distinguished the current program.
The program accepts two fellows per year, who train at Emory University Hospital, Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University, AVON Comprehensive Breast Center at Grady Memorial Hospital, and Emory University Hospital Midtown. Upon the completion of training, fellows will have the skills necessary to apply an integrated interdisciplinary approach to the management of women with benign and malignant breast diseases in a comprehensive and compassionate manner.
Applicants must have completed a general surgery residency and American Board of Surgery eligibility. Two fellows are selected per year and interviews are scheduled for the Fall preceding the match year. Instructions, requirements, and application materials can be found in the breast oncology match instructions section of the Society of Surgical Oncology website.
