Program description

The Interventional and Advanced Diagnostic Pulmonology Fellowship at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, is a one-year fellowship offered through the National Residency Matching Program to eligible graduates of pulmonary, pulmonary and critical care, or thoracic surgery fellowships. The fellowship maintains one fully-funded training position with the intent to graduate a fellow well-qualified to pass the board certification exam and establish independent practice as an interventional pulmonologist.

During the course of this one-year fellowship, trainees can expect a robust exposure to both malignant and non-malignant disease states involving primarily the airways, lung parenchyma and pleural space.


This program fulfills all training requirements as defined by the Multi-society Interventional Pulmonology Fellowship Accreditation Standard and is fully accredited by the American Association for Bronchology and Interventional Pulmonology (AABIP) and the Association of Interventional Pulmonology Program Directors (AIPPD).


After successful completion of this program fellows will be eligible to take the Interventional Pulmonology Certification Exam offered by the American Association for Bronchology and Interventional Pulmonology.

Program history

This fellowship began in 2013. It is anticipated that one fellow will complete the program annually.
