Department and Faculty

Specialists in the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine provide dedicated, continuous care to critically ill patients who require advanced monitoring and care in the intensive care unit setting. They are specially trained in the care of critically ill patients, and work in close collaboration with anesthesiologists, surgeons and other specialists in the hospital.

Critical care medicine specialists at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, manage patients with multisystem organ failure, central nervous system crises, cardiac failure, recent transplantations and other life-threatening problems.


Faculty members are committed to patient care, research and education in their daily practices. One attending staff physician provides teaching and patient care supervision for each ward team. Our consultants conduct daily bedside teaching rounds and are available 24 hours a day to give advice or assistance.

Advisers and mentors

Each fellow is assigned a faculty adviser who can provide comprehensive educational advice and personal support. Advisers also serve as a contact point for introducing fellows and their families to Rochester and the Mayo Clinic system.

Visiting professors

Many prominent professors visit Mayo Clinic each year. They present their work during noon and morning lectures and participate in hospital rounds. Fellows are encouraged to take full advantage of these opportunities.
