Clinical Chemistry fellow in the lab

Graduate medical education in laboratory medicine and pathology at Mayo Clinic

Page Content


Mayo Clinic offers a two-year Clinical Chemistry Postdoctoral Fellowship in Rochester, Minnesota.

Clinical chemistry applies chemical, molecular, and cellular techniques to the understanding and the evaluation of human health and disease. The results of these measurements and observations are relevant to the causes and extent of diseases as well as response to therapy. These data are converted into patient- and disease-related information at the laboratory-clinician interface.

The Clinical Chemistry Postdoctoral Fellowship offers:

  • Outstanding learning opportunities in a variety of clinical laboratory settings using state-of-the-art techniques
  • Diverse experiences in translational research
  • Hands-on participation in the development and introduction of sophisticated new tests for immediate patient care and diagnostic application


The program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation in Clinical Chemistry (ComACC).


After completing the first year of the two-year program, you are eligible and encouraged to take the board certification exam offered by the American Board of Clinical Chemistry (ABCC).

Program history

The Clinical Chemistry Postdoctoral Fellowship at Mayo Clinic in Minnesota began in 1976. Since that time, more than 80 fellows have completed training. We anticipate that two trainees will complete this program annually.
