Heidi is a pathologists’ assistant and Assistant Professor at Mayo Clinic in Rochester. Passionate about education, she helped create a lumpectomy course that uses breast tissue from consented autopsies to teach trainees how to approach the specimens. Heidi also lectures on grossing and tumor staging guidelines and regularly assists residents with autopsy by creating tutorial videos. Her greatest achievement? “Helping to expand the scope of practice for pathologists’ assistants. At Mayo Clinic, we pioneered a placenta rotation in which they not only perform the gross examination, but also preview the microscopy, consult cases, and prepare them for signout.”
