The Alan & Susan Fuirst Women At Risk Breast Surgery Fellowship

Growing from our commitment to make the highest standard of care available to all women, the annual, one year WAR Fellowship in Breast Surgery was established in 2003, with the goal of improving the quality of breast health care available to patients in communities beyond the New York Metropolitan area that WAR directly serves.

This fellowship is designed to expand a general surgical trainee's basic knowledge of the management of patients at high-risk and with breast disease. The modern management of patients with diseases of the breast requires an in-depth understanding of surgery, breast imaging, image-directed biopsy techniques, pathology, radiation oncology and medical oncology. Successful completion of a 5-year accredited program in general surgery is a prerequisite.

Beginning in July, the Fellow will spend 8.5 months on the breast surgery service, 1 month in mammography, 1 month in the medical oncology outpatient clinics, 1 month in pathology and 2 weeks in radiation oncology and genetic counseling. The trainees are expected to complete at least one scholarly project suitable for publication in a peer reviewed journal, give at least one oral presentation as well as participate in teaching medical students and residents.

This fellowship is generously underwritten by Alan & Susan Fuirst.

Application and Selection Process

A written application, including a copy of the candidate's curriculum vitae and 3 letters of recommendation will be solicited (Including Chairman's or Program director's letter). Applications are due by September 30 each year.

Appropriate candidates will be interviewed by the participating surgical faculty.

Applicants will be selected by faculty committee based on past record of achievement, recommendations and the interview process.
