Overview

Program Description

Mayo Clinic offers a two-year Clinical Chemistry Postdoctoral Fellowship in Rochester, Minnesota.

Clinical chemistry applies chemical, molecular and cellular techniques to the understanding and the evaluation of human health and disease. The results of these measurements and observations are relevant to the causes, extent of diseases and response to therapy. These data are converted into patient- and disease-related information at the laboratory-clinician interface.

The Clinical Chemistry Postdoctoral Fellowship offers:

  • Outstanding learning opportunities in a variety of clinical laboratory settings using state-of-the-art techniques
  • Diverse experiences in translational research
  • Hands-on participation in the development and introduction of sophisticated new tests for immediate patient care and diagnostic application

Accreditation

The Clinical Chemistry Postdoctoral Fellowship is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation in Clinical Chemistry (ComACC).

Certification

After completing the first year of the two-year program, fellows are eligible and encouraged to take the board certification exam offered by the American Board of Clinical Chemistry (ABCC).

Program history

The Clinical Chemistry Postdoctoral Fellowship began in 1976. Since that time, more than 80 fellows have completed training. It is anticipated that two trainees will complete this program annually.
