Why physical medicine and rehabilitation at Mayo Clinic?

The clinical and educational training at Mayo Clinic is simply outstanding! Traditional programs tend to offer the basics when it comes to residency training; however, at Mayo you are exposed to nearly every specialty and subspecialty and learn firsthand from the leading international experts across multiple disciplines.

The rotations range from diagnostic and therapeutic ultrasonography in musculoskeletal medicine to complex oncologic and transplant patients with severe neuromuscular impairments.

My interest in the rehabilitation medicine program at Mayo Clinic was sparked by the unique, yet simple, principle that serves as the foundation for all learning at Mayo, "The needs of the patient come first."
