JOB DESCRIPTION: Emory University, School of Medicine and affiliated hospitals has position openings in our
Breast Imaging fellowship for July 2020. We follow the revised curriculum of the American College of Radiology/Society of Breast Imaging. As imaging is the foundation for a multidisciplinary approach for breast care, the fellow will be integrated into the Emory Breast Health Care Team which includes breast surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, breast pathologists, and an array of nurse navigators, nurses, nurse practitioners, technologists, and support staff. For all involved, empathetic, evidence-based patient care and interaction are emphasized and practiced. Breast imaging fellows will actively participate in weekly multidisciplinary breast conferences at all hospitals where they rotate, interpret screenings and diagnostic mammograms including digital tomosynthesis, perform and interpret breast ultrasound exams and interpret breast MRIs. Breast Imaging fellows will attain proficiency in breast interventional procedures including all forms of pre-operative localization, ultrasound-guided biopsy, MRI-guided breast biopsy, stereotactic biopsy (prone and upright units), and abscess drainage.
Digital mammography with tomosynthesis is used at all Emory Breast Imaging Centers. Other equipment include upright and prone stereotactic biopsy tables, DBT-guided biopsy, an array of vacuum-assisted and automated breast biopsy devices, and ultrasound with elastography capability. Radioactive seed and radiofrequency marker placement are being employed at the Emory Breast Imaging Centers. The breast fellowship also involves teaching medical students and residents. Research opportunities are available and encouraged and research time will be allocated to those with approved projects and demonstrable progress.
MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS: Applicants must have completed or be scheduled to complete an ACGME (American) or RCPSC (Canadian) accredited diagnostic radiology residency prior to July 1 of the fellowship year. Qualified applicants must hold an MD degree or equivalent and meet requirements for medical licensure in the state of Georgia.-56280BR
