The Mayo Clinic Department of Otorhinolaryngology offers a research fellowship that provides an opportunity for fellows to work within our research program to advance patient care.

As a research fellow, you will be given an opportunity to immerse yourself in the research side of clinical practice and gain invaluable experience and training for your future career.

In the program, you will develop a research plan, meet with departmental statisticians to create a statistical plan and have a fellowship timeline. You'll also give presentations to the department's Research Committee, which helps fellows meet research goals and gain experience presenting. In addition, fellows assist with ongoing projects, database management and data acquisition.

The number of publications and projects each fellow can participate in is directly related to the individual’s motivation and efficiency. The department encourages fellows to take leadership roles and earn first authorship in their primary projects.
