CMC's Department of General Surgery and Levine Cancer Institute are proud to announce that we are accepting applications for a new breast surgery fellowship. The fellowship program will support an annual, one-year intensive clinical fellowship that encompasses all aspects of breast surgery.
Applications for the inaugural Charis Fellowship will be nationally competitive and will generally involve a young physician who has recently completed his or her surgical residency. The fellowship will encompass all aspects of breast surgery, including diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the breast through medical disciplines ranging from pathology and radiology to medical and radiation oncology.
"We look forward to recruiting some of the most talented young surgeons and providing them with comprehensive training in the latest diagnostic and surgical techniques," said Dr. White, Co-Director of the Center's Breast Health Program. "I feel certain it will positively impact future breast cancer care available to women in the Carolinas."
This first Charis Cancer fellow is expected to be selected and begin fellowship duties at Levine Cancer Institute by July 2010, with annual support provided through the charitable endowment established by an anonymous gift.
To apply for this fellowship, contact Teresa Flippo, MD, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 704-355-3809.
