Why I chose Mayo Clinic for residency training
The distinguishing qualities that set Mayo Clinic apart from other residency programs include an unmatched commitment to resident success, a quality mentorship structure, and unlimited access to valuable resources. Program directors, preceptors, and support personnel alike are dedicated to seeing that each resident is given the appropriate guidance and tools necessary to achieve both personal and professional goals, creating a support network that encourages resident growth and development.
As a worldwide leader in healthcare, Mayo Clinic offers an impressive variety of elective rotations, providing opportunities to serve a diverse and complex patient population on a daily basis. Outside of the clinical setting, residents are also able to take on roles in clinical research, educational program development, and committee leadership. Each of these program components made Mayo Clinic an ideal fit for my career goals and I’m confident that the skills gained from these experiences will prepare me to contribute meaningfully to patient care as a clinical pharmacist.
Finally, I was drawn to Mayo Clinic because it allows me to work collaboratively within a community of genuine and compassionate people who continually strive to deliver exceptional care by putting the needs of the patient first. Needless to say, it is an honor to be part of a program with such a long-standing tradition of excellence, and one that has developed so many leaders in pharmacy and healthcare worldwide.
