Why physical medicine and rehabilitation at Mayo Clinic?

When I began my search for a residency, I was looking for a well-rounded program with people who would push me to become my best. I found exactly that at Mayo. We have a balanced program with unparalleled, diverse learning opportunities. The resources for learning, whether clinically or research-oriented, are essentially limitless.
