Fellowship Goals

Fellows should be willing to read widely and in-depth about all aspects of breast imaging and diagnosis. They should participate in quality assurance, accreditation and all other administrative aspects of a successful breast imaging practice. They should do these things in order to promote the habit of lifelong education, to prepare themselves as resources in their medical and lay community for all aspects of breast health above and beyond what increased practice experience can provide, and to be ready to assume leadership roles in their practice, medical community and lay community relative to breast health and as well as other community needs.
