Why physical medicine and rehabilitation at Mayo Clinic?

I chose Mayo PM&R because Mayo Clinic is a renowned, world-class health care organization that puts the needs of its patients first. Mayo PM&R is dedicated to helping patients regain their maximal function and improve their quality of life.

I was highly attracted to the program's vast offering of educational resources, including in-depth training courses in anatomy, physical diagnosis, injection principles and practices, and diagnostic and interventional musculoskeletal ultrasound.

Furthermore, the amenities of the residency program, including the Dan Abraham Healthy Living Center, have helped me continue living an active and healthy lifestyle during residency.
