Breast Imaging

We participate in the Breast Imaging Match program administered by the National Residency Match Program (NRMP).

  • We are currently accepting applications for clinical instructor positions in 2021-2022.
Overview

For those interested in advanced training, the Division of Breast Imaging offers qualified physicians a one year non-tenured breast imaging instructorship. Candidates must have an MD or equivalent and successfully completed a residency in diagnostic radiology at an ACGME accredited institution.

Our post-graduate fellowship program focuses on all aspects of breast imaging, including clinical consultation, screening and diagnostic mammography, breast ultrasound, breast MRI, galactography, and image-guided interventional procedures; core biopsies are performed under ultrasound, stereotactic, and MRI guidance. In addition to gaining further expertise in this subspecialty, fellows will serve as junior faculty, playing a significant role in resident education.

Fellows participate in conducting leading-edge breast imaging research. The division recently received a $5.5 million grant from the Department of Defense to develop an innovative new breast cancer screening model. In the next five to six years, this innovative new model is expected to become the national standard in breast cancer screening.

Fellow Testimonials

“This program provides superb training with exposure to all modalities along with fantastic technologists and excellent surgical colleagues, all centered within the small-town charm of beautiful Charlottesville.”

“I really appreciate the very organized working and teaching environment in this fellowship, with current information and the latest technology.”

“I am very happy that I chose UVA for my breast imaging fellowship. You are able to train under nationally renowned faculty and see a high volume of cases. I feel that I will be very well prepared for either an academic or a private practice setting.”
