Further, the successful candidate can leverage research and education resources available through Lombardi’s highly funded Cancer Prevention and Control Program, MedStar Health Research Institute, MedStar Institute for Innovation, and MedStar-Georgetown Surgical Outcomes Research Center.

The Ourisman Center is a newly renovated, state-of-the-art breast center with a designated team of interdisciplinary breast professionals working in coordination with each other to offer seamless, confident, accurate, and efficient management of breast care.
