Department and Faculty
The Department of Urology at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, is composed of approximately 20 faculty members. Among these, the department currently has six full-time urologic oncology faculty members, all of whom are experts in the nuanced field of urologic oncology.
In addition to caring for patients in their clinical practices, Mayo Clinic's faculty is committed to teaching and facilitating the growth of medical knowledge. Our faculty members have published and lectured extensively and are highly regarded in their field. Fellows have direct access to these urology specialists during training in the Urologic Oncology Fellowship.
Advisers and mentors
You select a faculty adviser from the urology physician staff who can provide comprehensive educational advice and personal support. Trainees meet with their advisers periodically throughout the fellowship to review progress and career goals, and ensure that their educational needs are being met. Your adviser also serves as a contact point for introducing you and your family to Rochester, Minnesota, and the Mayo Clinic system.
Each year the Department of Urology hosts prominent world-renowned urologists as visiting professors to Mayo Clinic. They present their work during lecture events, participate in hospital rounds and lead discussions with trainees during formal case presentations. You are encouraged to take full advantage of these educational opportunities.
