Why physical medicine and rehabilitation at Mayo Clinic?

I chose Mayo PM&R because I felt comfortable and welcomed the minute I stepped through the door. The residents I met while interviewing seemed very happy and had no qualms about promoting the program. I found a good mix of my interests in the clinical areas available and found the staff to be very accessible.

Now that I'm in my last year as a Mayo resident, I've found that all of my perceptions as an interviewee were true. I've enjoyed cultivating a solid research base in inpatient spinal cord injury medicine and had solid support throughout all of my clinical endeavors and research. This is truly a great place to train.
