Why physical medicine and rehabilitation at Mayo Clinic?

Mayo Clinic is a top-echelon medical facility and recognized worldwide. The three interlocking shields of patient care, education and research truly are the foundation upon which Mayo Clinic's vision is built.

There is great opportunity for residents to learn from the world's top experts in various fields of medicine and participate in cutting-edge research. The collaboration across different specialties is striking and creates a superb teamwork environment that is of great benefit to the patients.

Mayo PM&R emphasizes didactics and incorporates well-taught musculoskeletal anatomy and ultrasound courses early on, providing an outstanding foundation of knowledge that is reinforced and built upon by clinical experience. The consultants (also called "attendings") are passionate about teaching and committed to your success as a physiatrist. I have thoroughly enjoyed my residency training at Mayo PM&R.
