Curriculum

Our residents enjoy a curriculum that offers a wide variety of clinical and hospital-based experiences as well as daily didactics presented by residents, fellows and consulting staff. The schedule is well balanced and allows electives early in the training process as well as academic mentorship and research opportunities during the intern year.

The patient population encountered at Mayo Clinic in Florida provides diverse pathology, from bread-and-butter internal medicine to rare and complex diagnoses that present to a tertiary academic setting.
