Breast Oncology Fellowship

About the Breast Oncology Fellowship Program
Volumes of research about breast disease point toward an increasing need for specialization in the field of breast health, including breast surgery. This need has developed into a breast oncology fellowship.

Akron General Medical Center offers a one-year Society of Surgical Oncology Accredited Breast Oncology Fellowship position for exceptional and caring surgeons seeking additional post-graduate training to better understand and meet the needs of breast disease patients.

The full curriculum is offered through Akron General Medical Center, including the Reflections Breast Health Center - a special service for patients, where the surgical evaluation process begins and treatment is expedited.

The multidisciplinary Breast Oncology Fellowship follows guidelines provided by the Society of Surgical Oncology and accepts applications through their Society of Surgical Oncology Matching Program. Our program offers surgical, clinical and research experience with supervised clinical responsibilities. Our Fellowship has received a full five-year re-accreditation by the Society of Surgical Oncology.

Rotations include:

  • Breast Surgery
  • Breast Imaging
  • Medical Oncology
  • Radiation Oncology
  • Surgical Pathology
  • Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
  • Psycho-oncology
  • Genetic Counseling
  • Clinical Research
