Duke University Medical Center has long been recognized as a premier academic institution and leader in academic surgery.

Located in central North Carolina, the Duke Cancer Institute serves as a tertiary referral center for the mid-Atlantic region, drawing patients from Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina. Across the Duke Health Care system, almost 1,200 breast cancers are diagnosed and treated annually.

The Breast Surgical Oncology Fellowship seeks to educate surgeons in the management of both benign and malignant breast diseases. Graduating candidates will be confident in the skills acquired during their fellowship year and be trained to become leaders in either the academic and community setting.
