The Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology at Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, Arizona, is part of a growing, internationally-recognized academic medical center set in the beautiful Sonoran Desert. A highly skilled team of medical professionals including physicians, scientists, medical technologists, medical technicians, lab assistants, biologists, chemists, microbiologists, geneticists, and other specialists work collaboratively to provide high-level care for many. The department receives specimens for testing from Mayo Clinic and is a growing part of the Mayo Clinic reference laboratory for other clinics and hospitals, both nationally and internationally.
The Division of Anatomic Pathology has 17 pathologists with specialty expertise covering the entire field of surgical pathology. The division is organized around groups dedicated to specific organ systems, but all members contribute to general areas as well, such as frozen section service, autopsy, and cytology.
The division is supported by a full-service histology and immunohistochemistry laboratory. Most molecular testing is performed at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, with whom we partner closely. The pulmonary pathology group, established by Dr. Thomas V. Colby, has long been recognized as one of the world leaders in providing consultative services for pathologists in the United States and around the globe. The division is also home to the Charles B. Carrington Teaching Collection of interesting and challenging thoracic pathology cases dating back to the mid-1980s, one of the largest collections of pulmonary pathology material in the world and a rich source of educational and research material.
