Kathryn del Valle, M.D.

Residency: Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota

About me: I grew up in the Twin Cities and was a history major in college. After my internal medicine residency at Mayo Clinic, I chose Pulmonary and Critical Care because I love the pace and challenge of critical care and the complexity of pulmonary care.

Hobbies: I enjoy spending times with friends and family, hiking, working on my cooking/baking skills, and going to art museums and concerts (pre-COVID… hopefully back at it soon!). 

Zhenmei Zhang, M.D.

Residency: Mayo Clinic in Rochester

About me: I grew up in Nanjing, China, and moved to Minnesota for college. I did my medical school in New York and residency at Mayo Rochester and chose Pulmonary and Critical Care because I enjoy physiology and the multidisciplinary approach of ICU practice.

Hobbies: I like to travel, try new restaurants and watch crime shows and Marvel movies.

Kirill Lipatov, M.D.

Residency: Scott & White Medical Center

About me: I went to the University of Kansas for college and medical school. I did my residency and chief residency at Scott & White Medical Center in Texas. I chose PCCM because it is arguably one of the few specialties equally dedicated to prolonging life and relieving suffering.

Hobbies: In my free time I like to read and spend time outdoors.
