2020 Virtual Breast Cancer Survivorship Event
We will be livestreaming our event this year. The Breast Cancer Survivorship Experience is a unique opportunity for breast & surgical oncology, plastic surgery fellows and other healthcare providers to spend time learning about breast cancer survivorship from both physicians and patients. You will have the opportunity to learn about holistic/integrative modalities and discovery firsthand the benefits of programs offered for healing. The event is filled with powerful and insightful presentations.
We made the decision to hold our 2020 BCSE as a virtual event this year. We are disappointed we cannot have an in-person event this year due to COVID-19 but hope you will plan to join us for our virtual event. Our virtual event starts the evening of 12/4/20 and runs all day Saturday 12/5/20.

Background and Overview
Education of breast surgeons may begin in the operating room, focusing on the “science” of treating breast cancer. However, learning about how to guide patients from diagnosis through recovery is truly the “art” of breast care. The Society of Surgical Oncology (SSO) sanctioned breast fellowship courses to train young surgeons about the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer, with their primary focus on the science. In addition to the treatment of the disease, the SSO now requires breast surgeons to learn about survivorship, prevention, and after cancer care.
Over the past nine years, Dr. William Scarlett and Dr. Beth DuPree have developed “The Breast Cancer Survivorship Experience” course. During this course, they have taught fellows the “art” of breast care for the patients. We are pleased to have Dr. William Scarlett and Dr. Beth DuPree as the co-facilitators again for the 2020 course.
The main objective of the course is to provide these young breast & surgical oncology and plastic surgery fellows with the educational resources to complement their surgical specialty education.

Comments from Previous Breast Fellow Attendees
“This course went beyond the education of the fellowship to talk about survivorship, which no one really discusses. This is much needed information!”
“Thank you for organizing this course and inviting us to attend. I learned a lot and will certainly use this information for my future patients!
“Wonderful conference! I’m so glad I went and would definitely recommend it for future fellows! It made me even more excited to start my career! Thank you so much!”
“Excellent course. Covers important topics that are often omitted from traditional fellowship programs.”
