Meet our trainees

The collaborative and collegial environment coupled with exposure to a wide variety of cases and the ability to do research on rare diseases enabled me to choose Mayo pathology for both my residency and fellowship. Working with a diverse group of faculty every day is truly inspiring and enhances the educational value of my training.
