Anatomic and Clinical Pathology Residency (Minnesota)
Meet Our Trainees
Holly Berg, D.O.
What has been most rewarding about your training so far?
I have had the privilege of participating in a few cases where the patient had non-specific clinical symptoms or years of poor health without a true “answer” and we were able to provide a diagnosis the clinical team could begin treating. It is incredibly rewarding to know that finally having a diagnosis.
Casey Gleue, M.D.
Why did you choose Mayo Clinic?
Initially knowing that I’d be training at one of the most well-respected hospitals with a diverse patient population and being able to be exposed to common and rare diseases. I stayed for the people and environment. This is a highly professional but highly caring environment! I felt that after interviewing here and knew that for my personality. Everyone is treated with respect and there is always a positive atmosphere.
Daniel Larson, M.D.
Is there anything that surprised you about Rochester, Minnesota?
Rochester is such a pleasant blend of world-class medicine and a small-town environment. Life is simple; I walk to work, and believe it or not, I don’t miss being stuck in traffic. My wife and I are able to own a house, find a great work-life balance, and are able to enjoy more metropolitan activities in the nearby Twin Cities almost weekly. It’s pretty special to see a one-in-a-million diagnosis on a daily basis and always see a friend or colleague when out in the community.

How did you come to decide to pursue pathology as a career?
I came to Mayo Clinic in 2015 as a research trainee in the division of hematology. It was during this time when I collaborated with the department of pathology on various research projects, I realized my true calling lies in pathology. Analyzing the morphology, correlating the clinical information, labs, and ancillary studies such as immunostains and genetics is a thrilling experience and instilled the passion to pursue pathology as my career.
