Bone and Soft Tissue Fellowship (Minnesota)

Program Description

The one-year Bone and Soft Tissue Pathology Fellowship Program exposes you to a comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach to the diagnosis of benign and malignant bone and soft tissue tumors.

This intensive training program is designed to prepare you for a career in an academic or large private referral center. You will review all of Mayo Clinic's consultation cases seen by members of the Bone and Soft Tissue team, approximately 5000 cases per year.

In-house ancillary studies are utilized extensively and include immunohistochemistry, in situ hybridization, cytogenetics, molecular genetics, and electron microscopy. The bone and soft tissue pathology service supports a large multidisciplinary practice, including surgery, oncology, radiation therapy, radiology and nuclear medicine.

You will be responsible for reviewing all clinical material and radiological studies, and will participate in the daily Orthopedic Pathology-Radiology Conference and the weekly multidisciplinary sarcoma conference. Clinicopathological research is strongly encouraged and extensive diagnostic resources (e.g., IHC, FISH, RT-PCR) are available to you.


This fellowship program is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

Program History

The Bone and Soft Tissue Pathology Fellowship Program at Mayo Clinic in Rochester will accept its first fellow to complete the program in 2009. Going forward, it is anticipated that one fellow will complete this program annually. Mayo Clinic's Surgical Pathology Fellowship began in 1919. Since then, nearly 200 fellows have completed their training in this program.
