FELLOW TO START AUGUST 1ST, 2019
The Cancer Institute at Advocate Christ Medical Center offers an unaccredited one-year fellowship in Breast Oncology for general surgeons who seek advanced training in this field. We are currently training our 5th fellow and are in the process of applying for SSO accreditation.
Advocate Christ Medical Center is a 788-bed tertiary care hospital that is part of the twenty-seven hospital Advocate Aurora Health Care System. We are projected to see over 2,000 newly diagnosed cancer patients in 2019 with approximately 500 patients treated for breast cancer. Additionally, there is a high volume of benign breast disease that requires surgical intervention.
Upon successful completion of the fellowship, the fellow can expect to obtain a thorough and in-depth understanding of the comprehensive management for breast cancer patients and those with benign breast disease. ACMC currently has three full-time dedicated breast surgeons, with the fellow actively involved and mentored throughout all aspects of their training by both senior members and other colleagues involved with the Breast Cancer Program. To this end, participation is required at our weekly multidisciplinary team breast conference (every Tuesday) as well as our multidisciplinary breast oncology clinic (every Friday) that is staffed by our team of breast-oncology specialists, comprised of medical, surgical and radiation oncology, breast oncology nurses, patient navigators, clinical research nurses and trained genetic counselors.
Must have completed a general surgery residency. We cannot support any visa applications.
