Department and Faculty
The Division of Infectious Diseases at Mayo Clinic was established in the 1950s and now consists of over 35 consultants, 17 fellows, and a growing number of allied health staff including advanced practice providers, registered nurses, pharmacists, social workers and paramedical staff.
The Transplantation Infectious Diseases Focus Group, a section of the Division of Infectious Diseases, was established in 1988 and concentrates on the prevention, surveillance, optimal treatment, and analysis of infectious complications of transplantation. The group provides both hospital-based and outpatient consultations, and contributes directly to the development of enterprise-wide clinical practice protocols for improved care of transplant patients.
The Transplant Infectious Diseases Focus Group is an integral part of the Mayo Clinic Transplant Center — the William J. von Liebig Center for Transplantation and Clinical Regeneration.
In addition to caring for patients in clinical practice, Mayo Clinic's faculty is committed to teaching and facilitating the growth of medical knowledge. Many of our faculty members have published and lectured extensively and are highly regarded in their fields. You work closely with these individuals throughout your training in the Infectious Diseases Transplant Fellowship.
Advisers and mentors
Faculty mentors are available to provide comprehensive educational advice and personal support. You meet with your mentor periodically throughout the program to review your progress and career goals, and ensure that your educational needs are being met. Your mentor also serves as a contact point for introducing you and your family to Rochester, Minnesota, and the Mayo Clinic system.
Many prominent professors visit Mayo Clinic each year. They present their work during lectures, participate in hospital rounds and have informal discussions with trainees. You are encouraged to take full advantage of these opportunities.
