Every resident interested in breast cancer surgery specialist training should be given the opportunity to receive it. In the United States, the Society of Surgical Oncology offers a growing number of educational programs, accessible through a national match, after finishing residency in general surgery [1]. In Europe, however, due to heterogenous training systems across countries, a standardized training is lacking [2] and fellowship programs in breast surgical oncology are limited to specific countries such as the United Kingdom.

In 2018, the major European societies involved in breast surgical training, research, advocacy and education responded to this need by creating the European Breast Surgical Oncology (BRESO) project. In this edition of EJSO, BRESO present the Theoretical and practical knowledge curriculum for European Breast Surgeons [3], which has been developed by a panel of experts brought together to craft a 2-year fellowship program accessible to all young surgeons independent of discipline (general surgery, gynecology and plastic surgery). The BRESO Curriculum constitutes the framework of what a breast surgeon practicing within the European Union and European Economic Area should master in terms of theoretical knowledge and surgical skills.
