Upon coming to Mayo Clinic Rochester to start the Clinical Laboratory Science program, I realized I had picked the best place to achieve my certification. The training that I received goes above and beyond what other programs have to offer. The hands-on practice and experience in both the didactic and clinical rotation facilities prompt efficient learning. Also, being able to work alongside technologists in varied labs during the clinical rotations was both rewarding and beneficial to effective learning. I was also able to witness cases and patients that had conditions unseen in smaller clinical laboratories. All of these opportunities have helped to make my experience at Mayo Clinic extremely educational and valuable to my future in Clinical Laboratory Science.
