The Breast Imaging Fellowship Match was established in 2017 to improve the interview and offer process for residents applying to breast imaging fellowship programs. As the sponsoring organization, SBI is pleased again this year to support the 2021 Fellowship Match for 2022 appointments.

The Society wishes to acknowledge the ongoing support of the Match Committee in advocating for the Match:

Rachel Brem, MD, FSBI, Chair; Gary Whitman, MD, FSBI; Michelle Lee, MD; Lisa Mullen, MD; Katie Hunt, MD, FSBI; Janine Katzen, MD; Victoria Mango, MD, FSBI; Laurie Margolies, MD, FSBI; Kathryn Zamora, MD

Fellowship programs must be accredited or affiliated with an ACGME program (your institution’s residency program meets this criterion) and agree to the timeframe established by the National Resident Matching Program. All positions with 6 months or more of breast imaging instruction must be included in the Match.

SBI will adhere to the 2021 Match timeline set forth by the Society of Chairs of Academic Radiology Departments, and along with SCARD encourages programs to hold solely virtual interviews due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The dates for the 2021 Radiology Fellowship Match for 2022 appointments are:

  • August 1, 2020: Programs may accept applications
  • November 1, 2020: Virtual Interview Period begins
  • March 24, 2021: Match opens

  • May 19, 2021: Quota change deadline
  • June 2, 2021: Ranking closes
  • June 16, 2021: Match Day
  • July 1, 2022: Training begins

NEW FOR 2021: Virtual interviews may be given after November 1, 2020 for the 2021 Match. If your institution is participating for the first time, please sign and agree to the terms as set forth by the SBI Memorandum of Understanding.

Check out the all-new Applicant Guide to the Fellowship Match, created by the SBI Match Committee and the RFS Committee. Designed for residents who are preparing for the Match, this guide was developed in conjunction with the graphic timeline below as well as a comprehensive list of “Questions to Ask at a Fellowship Interview.” SBI hopes these resources help applicants navigate every step of the Match process.
