At Mayo Clinic you have the opportunity to care for a wide variety of patients. There are world-renowned experts in almost every obstetric and gynecologic disease at Mayo, which makes this a destination for patients with diagnostic and management challenges.
Mayo Clinic serves as a local, regional, and national center for care of common clinical pathology and rare, complex patient presentations. Minnesota also has diverse immigrant populations, including communities from Southeast Asia, Africa, and Eastern Europe.
We rely on our fellows to educate peers, students, allied health staff, community members, and even staff.
Your opportunities to teach run the gamut – from the informal and formal teaching on your surgical team, to designing and delivering didactic teaching for residents through the guidance of the faculty.
The program director is actively engaged with the ACOG simulation working group which offers an arena for dissemination of your work to other programs nationally.
Rochester is consistently recognized as one of the best cities to live in the U.S. Our fellows enjoy the small-town safety and conveniences paired with an array of diverse restaurants, entertainment venues, recreation spots, and activities for both families and young professionals.
"I enjoy the pace of Rochester. It is a very safe, calm, and family-friendly city. Lots of young professionals live here. I love my commute each morning (it's less than 5 minutes)!"

“Rochester is an easy city to live in. It’s super easy to get to and from work every day, and although winter is real here, the city tends to manage it well. I personally enjoy the farmer’s market, going to trivia with my friends, lifting weights at the Dan Abraham Healthy Living Center, and hanging out after work with my coworkers. It’s not too far from the Twin Cities, which is great because my husband and I love going to concerts and music festivals. The music scene is also starting to pick up in Rochester, though, so we don’t always have to make the drive to go to a show!”
