Breast Oncology Fellowship Program Information Database Instructions

New Application for SSO-ASBS Breast Oncology Fellowship Approval

The SSO Training Committee is pleased to report the development and the posting of the Breast Oncology Fellowship Program Information Database (PID), which will serve as the application for new Breast Fellowship Program approval by the SSO.

The SSO recognizes and appreciates the fact that many excellent programs have been patiently waiting for the opportunity to apply for the Society of Surgical Oncology (SSO)-American Society of Breast Surgeons (ASBS) Breast Fellowship for quite some time. The Training Committee has put an enormous effort into preparing what we believe is a fair and objective application process.

Breast Oncology Fellowship Program Information Database

Please complete the entire form (download Word document here), making sure you include all attachments outlined. All sections of the form must be completed in order to be accepted for review. For items that do not apply, indicate N/A in the space provided. If any requested information is not available, an explanation should be provided in the appropriate place on the form.

The PID and all attachments must be submitted in one single PDF document. For review purposes, all attachments must be bookmarked in the pdf (see below for resources). Once completed, email your PID to fellowship@surgonc.org. If the file is too large to send via email, please send using Dropbox.

PIDs will be accepted from May 1 – August 1

This is a strict deadline as a number of months will be needed to review the applications and schedule site visit for those programs meeting the minimum requirements. Site visits will be scheduled in the winter so that programs receiving approval may participate in the next year’s Breast Oncology Fellowship Match.

If you have any questions, please contact Alanna Persaud at alannapersaud@surgonc.org.
