SBI Announces New Initiative for Residents
The Society of Breast Imaging (SBI) is pleased to announce a new initiative to simplify the current interview and offer process for residents who apply to breast imaging fellowship programs. The SBI Breast Imaging Fellowship Match Program gives applicants and fellowship programs the opportunity to gather more information and consider all options before making application decisions. “The Fellowship Match Program will set a uniform date and timeline for applicants and permit residents to apply one year before entering a fellowship so they may make informed decisions about their profession,” says Gary J. Whitman, MD, FACR, chair of the SBI Breast Imaging Fellowship Committee.
