Meetings and Conferences

Conferences in subspecialty fields well beyond the breast-specific curriculum also occur throughout the campus, though are not required for the breast fellowship. These include weekly seminars in general surgical oncology, head and neck, and thoracic surgical oncology. There are also daily multidisciplinary site-specific tumor conferences, weekly preoperative conferences, multidisciplinary journal clubs, and daily noon oncology lecture series. In addition to receiving formal training in cancer surgery, fellows are exposed to tumor biology, biostatistics, research design, and methodology.
