Mayo Clinic pediatric and adolescent surgeons perform more than 8,000 procedures annually.

In addition to caring for patients in their clinical practices, Mayo Clinic's faculty members are committed to teaching and facilitating the growth of medical knowledge. All faculty members have academic appointments in the College of Medicine. Many faculty have published and lectured extensively and are nationally renowned in their field. You will have direct access to the Department of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine faculty at Mayo Clinic in Rochester throughout your training.

All pediatric medical and surgical subspecialties are well represented, including three dedicated pediatric radiologists. A core group of academic pediatricians staff the general inpatient hospital service. Primary care pediatricians represent the largest portion of the department.

You also will work with trainees from the departments of Family Medicine, Anesthesia, and Emergency Medicine, as well as Mayo Medical School students.

Advisors and mentors

Our graduate education advisory system is designed to provide you with comprehensive educational advice and personal support. During the first year of training, you are assigned a general adviser. As training progresses, you may identify other faculty to serve in a mentoring capacity.

Visiting professors

The Department of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine hosts a number of guest lecturers each year. They present information on timely topics and have designated luncheons with residents and fellows, so you can have informal discussions with them. You are encouraged to take full advantage of these opportunities.
