Goals & Objectives

The primary goal of the breast pathology fellowship program is to educate fellows in all aspects of breast pathology and breast disease so that they become competent in integrated and multidisciplinary breast health care. The program has three major goals with an emphasis on competency-based educational outcome assessment:

  1. Development of skills in the diagnosis of breast disease through:
    • the diagnosis of non-neoplastic and neoplastic diseases of the breast and their mimics
    • the diagnosis of precursors of mammary neoplasia
    • the use of special techniques in the pathologic characterization of diseases of the breast
    • the diagnostic evaluation of patients, treatment algorithms and tumor staging parameters and prognostic indices
    • participation in a multidisciplinary team approach to the treatment of patients with breast diseases
  2. Development of investigational skills: The fellow will participate in clinical projects and/or translational research projects that provide experience in research methodology and utilization of analytical techniques
  3. Development of teaching and presentation skills through multidisciplinary interaction with cytopathology fellows, residents, students and faculty

At the completion of the 12 month program, it is expected that the fellow will have achieved a level of skill such that they can become effective members of a multidisciplinary breast health care team.
