Department and Faculty
The Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida, actively supports the lung, gastrointestinal, esophageal, bowel, hepatology, breast, heart, hepatobiliary, and kidney subspecialties with pathology services and educational programs.
The hospital surgical pathology practice at Mayo Clinic uses a frozen section for diagnosis intraoperatively as well as heavy biopsy service, including transplant biopsies from lungs, kidneys, hearts, and livers. A busy consult service also is part of the department workload.
Mayo Clinic's Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology in Florida has 13 surgical pathologists with subspecialty expertise covering many areas of pathology. Many of these pathologists have their own subspecialty areas such as breast, gastrointestinal, and lung. You have direct access to these individuals throughout the Surgical Pathology Fellowship.
Many prominent professors visit Mayo Clinic each year. They present their work during lectures, participate in hospital rounds, and have informal discussions with trainees. You are encouraged to take full advantage of these educational opportunities.
