Meet Our Fellows

Our fellows and faculty foster a collegial environment and education-focused culture that provides an inclusive learning experience. Training can be challenging, but our program is close-knit and each fellow brings a dedication to providing stellar patient care as well as a collaborative learning experience.

Our fellows come from medical schools around the U.S. and outside the country. Learn more about our current fellow and see what they have to say about the program:

Josh Brunton, D.O.

Josh Brunton, D.O.Medical school: Liberty University College of Osteopathic Medicine
Residency: Danbury Hospital
Hometown: Cotuit, MA

Hobbies: Cycling, golfing, cooking, traveling, and spending time with my wife and our Irish Setter/Poodle mix Winslow. 

Favorite things to do in Rochester: Spending time with my wife and our dog. I have really enjoyed picking up golf as there are many public courses in Minnesota. I like hanging out with other OB-GYN fellows, trying new restaurants or local breweries, and exploring other cities/towns in Minnesota. 

What is living in Rochester, Minnesota, like for you? Rochester has a nice mix of restaurants and shopping in town but also is an easy drive to the Minneapolis/St. Paul area for additional culture/food/shopping options. For those from out of state, MSP is a large airport with many direct flights making seeing family easier during your time off. If you aren't from Minnesota, make sure to invest in a warm parka!

What do you like about the fellowship at Mayo Clinic? Wonderful people within our department and the dedicated year of research gives you time to develop a quality project and there are many departmental resources to assist you. Working closely with the residents, medical students, and other fellows provides a rich learning/teaching environment.

What makes this program unique? Our program includes a year of research that includes a graduate clinical and translational research certificate program which, for those interested in furthering their academic career, sets us apart from other OBH fellowships.

Why Mayo Clinic: The reputation of Mayo Clinic is well known, and we are fortunate to have many leaders in the obstetrics and maternal fetal medicine community as part of our department which enriches the learning environment here tremendously. Also, as a dual physician family, I was fortunate to follow my wife here for the next step in our medical training. 

What does your future look like right now? I plan to continue my career in academics, continuing clinical research, and further involvement in medical student/resident education.
