Breast Cancer

The SGO Breast Committee is dedicated to providing a comprehensive approach to women’s cancer care through education and the recently developed SGO Breast Certificate Fellowship Program. A holistic approach to caring for women with cancer is necessary in order to improve patient outcomes.

The Society has two pilot sites in its SGO Breast Certificate Fellowship Program. The two programs, located at Hope Women’s Cancer Centers in Asheville, NC, and Women and Infants Hospital in Providence, RI, offer a training guide and metrics on which fellows will be assessed upon completing the certificate program.
