Surgical Outcomes Research Fellows

The Surgical Outcomes Research Program invites selected surgical residents interested in research to become surgical outcomes research fellows. These fellows take one or two years away from clinical training to receive mentoring in health services research from Elizabeth B. Habermann, Ph.D., and a team of clinical mentors appropriate to each fellow's area of interest.

Past fellows have published dozens of peer-reviewed publications, spoken internationally and nationally, and worked toward their shared goal of becoming academic surgeons. In the early years of the fellowship, all fellows were located at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota. Fellows at Mayo Clinic's campus in Arizona have been primarily mentored by David A. Etzioni, M.D.
