Meet Our Fellows

The Cytopathology Fellowship draws trainees from across the U.S. and around the world. While all our trainees have a love of learning and a compassionate approach to patient care, they come from diverse backgrounds, family status, and professional and personal interests. Meet our current fellow and learn about their experience in the program.

Why did you choose to train at Mayo Clinic?

"I chose the Cytopathology Fellowship at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota for the access to a variety of cases, the dedication to excellence, and the common goal of patient-centered care. In my free time, I enjoy playing tennis and going for a run on the Douglas State Trail in Rochester. In the future, I hope to join the staff at Mayo Clinic as an anatomic pathologist." 

Graduate outcomes

The most important indicator of the success of a training program is found in the outcomes of the graduates upon completion of their training. We have 100% cytopathology board pass rate. We prepare our fellows with the best possible training and faculty. The tools and experiences you learn here will help prepare you for the impact you are looking to make in your career. 

Graduates pursuing careers outside of Mayo Clinic will find that Mayo's reputation opens the door to opportunities at the most prestigious and competitive programs around the world.
