Mayo Clinic has exceeded my expectations in every possible way. Everything we do, every decision we make, and every test we perform is geared for world class patient care from the most common to the most complex diagnoses.

The educational support we receive as trainees is unbelievable. We are surrounded by experts in all areas of medicine who have a personal and professional commitment to education. We are supported not only with education but in our personal research interests as well.

What surprised you about your training at Mayo Clinic?

I am truly impressed by the pathology program at Mayo Clinic on many levels. The well-structured didactic sessions that augment residents’ knowledge base, the ample research opportunities residents have, the diversity of cases with the unique frozen section lab practice, and the accomplishments of the faculty are exceptional attributes of the program. One of the unique strengths of the Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology is its valuable commitment to quality management as a vehicle to improve patient care. Moreover, the happy and collegial atmosphere among the faculty and residents allows me to flourish both personally and professionally.

Why did you choose Mayo Clinic?

I chose Mayo Clinic for its culture, organization, and unique features of the training program. The frozen section lab offers an outstanding opportunity for immediate macroscopic-microscopic correlation and close interaction with the surgeons. The autopsy curriculum and rotation constitute one of the most comprehensive training experiences in the country, with a robust number of mixed hospital and forensic cases along with an unparalleled support system of people and resources. Offering world-class education in an environment of utmost professionalism, support, collegiality and work-life balance, Mayo Clinic is definitely an outstanding place to train.
