What do you like most about the Breast Imaging Fellowship?

"The Breast Imaging Fellowship at Mayo Clinic in Phoenix, Arizona, has a wide array of both screening and diagnostic modalities that only a handful of other fellowship programs in the country have. I am the most appreciative, however, of the high standard that the Breast Imaging faculty requires of its trainees. Nothing can better prepare me for the interactions I will have with patients, colleagues, and referring clinicians, whether in academics or private practice."

Why did you choose Mayo Clinic for your fellowship?

"After interviewing at several programs, the Breast Imaging Fellowship at Mayo Clinic in Phoenix, Arizona, stood out for a number of reasons. Expectations are set high from day one. The fellows are given progressive autonomy (both in diagnostics and procedures), eventually functioning as independent practitioners ready for life beyond training. Mayo provides a great environment for fellows to grow and thrive throughout the year."

Breast Attending at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida

"The Breast Imaging Fellowship prepared me for a career in academic medicine. The program and institution are supportive of research endeavors, offer the opportunity to teach residents in the reading room every day, and allowed me to independently practice and perform breast imaging procedures early on in the fellowship. This learned confidence made the transition from fellow to staff easy and fun."

2018 Graduate

Breast Radiologist at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas

"I was fortunate to learn from highly respected experts in my field and to strengthen my overall skillset through exposure to additional radiology disciplines during the course of the Breast Imaging Fellowship. I emerged from this program with a complement of skills that has enabled me to function very proficiently at an extremely high level. I left prepared for busy clinical practice. Most importantly, I know that I am a better physician and a better person because of my time at Mayo. I would recommend this program without reservation and I believe it to be, hands down, the best fellowship training experience obtainable."

Yania Lopez-Alvarez, M.D.

A new chapter in Puerto Rico

"Yania Lopez-Alvarez, M.D. returned home to Puerto Rico after her fellowship to put her training to use. Two months after Dr. Lopez-Alvarez’s return, Hurricane Maria devastated the island. Many physicians left due to the hurricane and economic crisis, but Dr. Lopez-Alvarez remains rock solid in her commitment to remain in Puerto Rico and be part of the solution to improve life on the island. She says Mayo Clinic’s investment in her medical education will have significant dividends for her fellow islanders." - Mayo Clinic Alumni Association Article, November 2020
