Why I chose Mayo Clinic for residency training
I knew the PGY-1 Pharmacy Residency at Mayo Clinic Hospital — Rochester was an excellent fit based on the institution's focus to provide optimal patient care through integrated interdisciplinary teamwork that places the needs of the patient first.
The directors and preceptors are focused on individualizing the program to challenge and develop the resident on multiple levels of patient care through exceptional clinical rotation experiences.
In addition to clinical rotation opportunities, the program appealed to me based upon the quality of presentations required, the institution's emphasis on education, and the opportunities and support for clinical research.
I feel very fortunate to have matched here and have no doubt that this program will provide a broad exposure to clinical pharmacy. Additionally, it will prepare me as a well-rounded clinician capable of providing safe and optimal patient care.
