The Breast Oncology Fellowship program at Anne Arundel Medical Center (AAMC) gives you the expertise and opportunities you need to advance your career in the specialized field of breast surgery.
Our breast specialists perform more than 7,000 clinical encounters and care for more than 600 patients with breast cancer. As a fellow in this program, you will have the opportunity to perform approximately 400 to 600 surgical procedures including skin-sparing mastectomies, ultrasound- and image-guided biopsies, image-guided partial mastectomies, and reconstructive surgery assists. In clinic, you will be able to care for a broad range of patients faced with breast conditions both benign and malignant.
In the Breast Oncology Fellowship program, our approach to teaching is no different than our approach to patient care: kind and supportive. We train our fellows to be leaders in breast surgical care, advocate for patients and work at the forefront of breast disease research.

- Provide superb and compassionate clinical care
- Foster a lifelong commitment to innovation and breast disease research
- Direct and understand the many facets and multidisciplinary aspects of a Breast Center
- Provide leadership for colleagues, Breast Center teams, government agencies, and insurance companies to improve breast disease care
