Why physical medicine and rehabilitation at Mayo Clinic?

I chose Mayo's PM&R residency because it felt like the right fit for me. Not only did it offer a wide variety of awesome training opportunities, but everyone I met on my interview day was great, including the residents, physicians and PM&R staff. I felt very comfortable and was excited for the opportunity to train here.

I have enjoyed every aspect of residency so far, from hanging out with my fellow residents, to taking care of patients and learning from our knowledgeable consultants. Looking back, I wouldn't have changed anything and I am looking forward to my next two years here!
