Meet The Faculty

The Department of Radiology at Mayo Clinic's campus in Arizona provides subspecialized, high-quality, comprehensive imaging and interventional care to patients. The department consists of over 40 radiologists, including five who have fellowship training in women's imaging.


In addition to caring for patients in clinical practice, Mayo Clinic's faculty is committed to teaching and facilitating the growth of medical knowledge. Many of our faculty members have published and lectured extensively and are highly regarded in their fields. You work closely with these individuals throughout your training in the Breast Imaging Fellowship.

From the program director

Victor Pizzitola, M.D.Welcome to the Breast Imaging Fellowship at Mayo Clinic's campus in Arizona! 

Our radiologists LOVE to teach and are committed to cultivating excellent breast imagers who not only achieve expertise in the fundamentals of breast radiology, but who also gain unparalleled skills in advanced imaging techniques often not found at other fellowship training programs.

After fellowship, our fellows are often able to function as a lead interpreting radiologist (LIP) in an independent breast imaging practice. Proudly, many fellows have taken on this role in their post-fellowship careers or have been charged with implementing and training others in advanced imaging techniques.

Mayo Clinic's campus in Arizona is a unique academic medical center that excels in our three areas of emphasis: patient care, research, and education. We have an accomplished group of attending physicians, many with national reputations and positions. 

Our staff, residents, and fellows work together in a collegial environment across all breast disciplines to advance breast care and provide our patients with excellence in care. I invite you to explore our fellowship program and to consider joining us.
