Learn more about the faculty's clinical expertise and research
The Department of Pathology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center offers one-year Breast Pathology Fellowship positions. All fellows should have completed residency training in anatomic pathology and be certified (or eligible for certification) by the American Board of Pathology.
The fellowship focuses on the characterization of mammary neoplasms and non-neoplastic diseases and emphasizes a multidisciplinary approach to patient management. Clinicopathologic and translational research is also an integral part of the training. The breast pathology fellows work closely with a cadre of breast pathology experts. The case material at MSK is especially complex and challenging and consists of both in-house specimens and submitted consultations. The breast pathology fellows actively participate in all clinical activities and present cases at the weekly multidisciplinary conference. The fellows are based at the state-of-the-art Evelyn H. Lauder Breast Center, and benefit from close interaction with a team of outstanding clinicians who specialize in the treatment of breast cancer patients. Selective rotations in the departments of surgery, radiology and radiation oncology enhance the understanding of the clinical aspects of breast diseases, and their implications for the practicing pathologist.
