Pulmonary Pathology Fellowship (Minnesota)

Pulmonary pathologists study an image

Overview

The mission of the Pulmonary Pathology Fellowship at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, is to train pathologists to become competent in the evaluation and diagnosis of routine, complex, and esoteric pathologic specimens from the lung, pleura, and mediastinum; to become consultants to other pathologists on these cases; and to advance the science of pulmonary pathology.

The curriculum of this one-year fellowship is uniquely designed to fulfill this mission.

Accreditation

The program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

Program history

The Pulmonary Pathology Fellowship at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, began in 1996 under the directorship of Henry Tazelaar, M.D. Our first fellow was Andras Khoor, M.D., Ph.D., who is now chair of the Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology at Mayo Clinic's campus in Jacksonville, Florida. The program received official ACGME accreditation in 2005. We anticipate that one trainee will complete this program annually.
