June 23, 2022

The Medical Breast Training Program provides clinicians with tools and knowledge to evaluate and manage common breast complaints, to perform personalized risk assessment and management, and to care for breast cancer survivors. The goal is to educate practitioners in the field about guidelines for screening and diagnosis, risk reduction, genetics and survivorship.

The program is run by The Mayo Clinic, in collaboration with The Cleveland Clinic and sponsored by The Peter Gilgan Centre for Women’s Cancers at Women’s College Hospital.

Participants, through online, pre-recorded lectures and live interactive case discussion sessions, will gain practical knowledge about the management of common breast issues, will confidently identify and manage those at risk and will effectively care for survivors, with topics ranging from bone health, to sexuality, to integrative medicine.
