"The most rewarding experience has been the opportunity to review the pathology of explant specimens with transplant patients. In this unique program patients have the opportunity to meet with the surgical pathology team and review their actual explant specimen in addition to a 3D printed model of their explanted organ."

Medical school: Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry, Western University (Ontario, Canada)

Residency: Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry, Western University (Ontario, Canada)

Graduates: Where are they now?

We began training our first fellow in 1996. Since that time, at least 15 physicians have completed their training in this program. All of our trainees are themselves accomplished pulmonary pathologists working in large academic centers throughout the U.S. and Canada.

"I stumbled onto pathology by chance. I got a chance to work at one of the best hospitals in India, but only if I went into pathology. What I found most rewarding about my training was the case mix (neoplastic and non-neoplastic) and high volumes of it. I loved the consult cases most about this program."

"The lung working group is composed of members with diversified backgrounds, all with vast experience in this field. While there is an overall diagnostic unity in the whole group, each member brings his or her own unique lens through which to approach the cases. Most importantly, the members can agree to disagree, which sets a collegial and harmonious environment. This fellowship therefore provides a rich and solid knowledge base for independent practice once the trainees are 'unleashed' into the real world."

2013 graduate and current clinical instructor at Surrey Memorial Hospital, British Columbia

"Having been part of such a great organization, even if only for a short time. The culture is instilled in trainees, and even though pathology is not practiced 'the Mayo way' at most institutions, alumni bring a little bit of the culture to their work on a daily basis."

2010 graduate and current anatomic pathologist at Emory University Hospital
