For application deadline dates and notification timeline, please click here.

As of December 16, 2019, the fee for processing applications for programs seeking initial approval will be a non-refundable $2,000 fee and an invoice will be generated and sent once the PID is received by the SSO. The PID will not be reviewed until the application fee has been paid.

Please be aware that this fee is not the site visit and annual program fee. This is a secondary fee that will be assessed at time of program approval and site visit.

Please go directly to the SSO Operative Data Collection System (ACGME) here.

The SSO continues to provide oversight of the Breast Oncology Fellowship Programs; however, the case op log database is managed by the ACGME. The migration from the previous case op log to the new database has been completed by ACGME. All program directors, coordinators and fellows have been emailed with their new ID and password. If there are any questions related to the case log system, please contact the ACGME support center at ADS@acgme.org.
