Why I chose Mayo Clinic for residency training
There are innumerable reasons why I chose to pursue the PGY-1 Pharmacy Residency at Mayo Clinic Hospital — Rochester, but what stood out the most is the strong commitment that Mayo Clinic has to provide optimal patient care.
When I first came to Mayo Clinic as an Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience (APPE) student, I was floored by the interprofessional participation and mutual respect demonstrated by the health care team. Each day, I had the opportunity to see firsthand how collaboration among physicians, nurses, pharmacists and social workers could successfully create optimal patient outcomes.
When it came to selecting a residency program, I knew that I wanted to engage in training at an institution where I could not only grow as a clinician, but also as a researcher and educator. After learning about the high-caliber research and teaching programs offered at Mayo Clinic in addition to the wealth of clinical practice opportunities, I was convinced that this was the right program for me.
