Program description

The mission of Mayo Clinic's Pulmonary Pathology Fellowship is to train pathologists to become competent in the evaluation and diagnosis of routine, complex and esoteric pathologic specimens from the lung, pleura and mediastinum; become consultants to other pathologists on these cases; and advance the science of pulmonary pathology.

The curriculum of this one-year fellowship is uniquely designed to fulfill this mission.


The Pulmonary Pathology Fellowship at Mayo Clinic is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

Program history

The Pulmonary Pathology Fellowship at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, began in 1996 under the directorship of Henry D. Tazelaar, M.D. Our first fellow was Andras Khoor, M.D., Ph.D., who is now chair of the Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology at Mayo Clinic's campus in Jacksonville, Florida. The program received official ACGME accreditation in 2005.

More than 13 physicians have completed their training under the mentorship of renowned pulmonary pathologists such as Dr. Tazelaar; Jeffrey L. Myers, M.D.; Thomas V. Colby, M.D.; Joanne (Eunhee) E. Yi, M.D.; and Marie-Christine Aubry, M.D. All of our trainees are themselves accomplished pulmonary pathologists working in large academic centers throughout the U.S. and Canada.
