Application Process

Breast Surgical Oncology Fellowship

ChristianaCare offers one appointment each year to the Breast Surgical Oncology Fellowship. Qualified applicants must have successfully completed an accredited general surgery residency program in the United States and must be American Board of Surgery certified or eligible. One fellow per year will be selected and interviews will take place in the spring, matching in summer for the following match year.

The Breast Surgical Oncology Fellowship Program selects eligible applicants on the basis of their preparedness, ability, aptitude, academic credentials, previous experience, communication skills and personal qualities such as motivation and integrity. The program does not discriminate with regard to sex, race, age, religion, color, national origin, sexual orientation, disability or veteran status.


Applicants for positions in the Breast Surgical Oncology Fellowship must submit their applications via SSO and will be chosen through the SSO Match System.
