Why physical medicine and rehabilitation at Mayo Clinic?

As a medical student, I wanted to choose the best residency program possible (think SEC in football). I chose Mayo because of the musculoskeletal medicine (injections, ultrasound and electromyography) and facilities.

Mayo has exceeded my expectations. I have the opportunity to attend weekly expert opinion conferences on topics such as pain, sports, gait analysis and spine; attend local and national conferences; and interact with a phenomenal group of fellow physiatrists who believe in promoting healthy lifestyles as well as delivering top-quality patient care. The Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Residency at Mayo Clinic is an elite training program.
