Your training experience
As a fellow at Mayo Clinic, you'll have access to robust clinical, educational, and research resources. You'll find support both inside and outside of the campus to promote physical and mental wellness and ensure your work/life balance.
The Pulmonary Pathology Fellowship at Mayo Clinic's campus in Scottsdale, Arizona, became ACGME accredited on April 21, 2022, under the directorship of Henry Tazelaar, M.D., who also started the very successful Pulmonary Pathology Fellowship at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, in 1996. The two fellowships work closely together and fellows from both programs have the opportunity to rotate to the other campus to take advantage of the somewhat differing nature of the two practice settings. Our first fellow in Arizona will start in 2022 for a one-year fellowship.
