Baylor University Medical Center, part of Baylor Scott & White Health, offers the Seeger Endowed Fellowship in Surgical Oncology of the Breast, which is a one-year program that is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
Because our training facility performs more than 40,000 mammograms yearly, our fellows have exposure to a full range of breast imaging services with staff members who have become experts in their field.

Physicians and surgeons on the medical staff at Baylor Dallas treat approximately 700 new breast cancer cases each year. Currently, two members of the surgery medical staff restrict their practices exclusively to diseases of the breast, and several others perform breast surgery. Fellows receive extensive education and experience in the gross and microscopic surgical pathology of tumors.
The Breast Imaging Center, located at Baylor Sammons Cancer Center, is a clinical and educational unit at the forefront of breast disease care. The center performs more than 50,000 mammograms each year and offers a wide variety of services.
