Residents may attend the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) Midyear Clinical Meeting or the Florida Residency Conference or both. Attendance at additional meetings is at the discretion of the residency program director and based on available funds. Typically, residents are allotted a maximum of 10 professional travel days a year.

Library resources

Residents have privileges to Mayo Clinic's library resources. Access to nearly 5,000 journals (more than 4,000 of which are online), electronic books and librarian services are provided free of charge. The libraries offer a variety of classes, including many online classes, to help trainees learn how to use the large number of resources.

Information technology resources

Mayo Clinic's campus in Jacksonville, Florida, provides cutting-edge technological resources to optimize the residency experience. Many mobile devices are supported by Mayo Clinic Information Technology. Access to wireless Internet, email accounts, Mayo apps and clinical software programs can be had at the touch of a button.

Additionally, residents may request remote access via virtual private network (VPN) for 24/7 electronic medical record and library access. Mayo Clinic also provides patient apps as free downloads, making health care resources readily accessible anywhere you are in the world.

Medical, dental, vision and prescription coverage

Residents are eligible for an excellent benefit package that includes medical and prescription coverage from day one, as well as a dental and vision reimbursement account or dental insurance.

Medical plan premiums for employee, employee plus a child or children, employee plus spouse, and family are competitively priced and selected by the resident during orientation. Prescription drug coverage varies based on the medical plan chosen.

Flexible spending accounts

A flexible spending account allows residents to specify a contribution amount to be deducted from their paychecks on a pretax basis. When employees incur eligible expenses for themselves or eligible dependents, they should submit a claim form to be reimbursed from their account.

All residents are eligible to utilize a health care flexible spending account and a dependent care flexible spending account.
