"My experience with this fellowship has been fantastic. The case complexity, staff knowledge base, and imaging quality are top-notch. I continue to be amazed by the breadth of pathology encountered here, which is exactly what I was looking for in a fellowship. I've also been particularly impressed by both the amount of prostate MR exposure, as well as female pelvic MR. With a family, the Phoenix area has also been wonderful. My spouse and I are thrilled with the abundance of outdoor activities and various opportunities for our kids. We could not be happier with our decision to move here for fellowship."

"Abdominal radiology fellowship training at Mayo Clinic Arizona is second to none. The volume of complex pathology that we see daily continues to impress me, and has been instrumental in my growth as a radiologist. I continue to be grateful for the extraordinary training from leading experts that this fellowship provides; both at the workstation from world-renowned radiologists as well as from our clinical colleagues in multi-disciplinary conferences. In addition to the amazing training, my wife and I enjoy spending our free time outdoors and feel incredibly blessed to be able to call such a naturally beautiful area our home."

"Within the first few months after completing the Abdominal/Body Radiology Fellowship at Mayo Clinic, I quickly realized the sheer amount of knowledge and confidence I had gained throughout the year. In retrospect, it is not surprising given the repetition of complex cases and wide range of pathology, combined with world-class radiologists who are passionate about educating others. In addition, active participation in a variety of multidisciplinary conferences provided an opportunity to learn clinical relevance, receive valuable feedback, and most importantly positively impact patient care."

Regino Cube, M.D.

“After the fellowship, I have taken a full-time position as a staff radiologist at the Phoenix VA which I found to be a reasonable fit given my prior years spent in the military healthcare system. The position provides a good combination of working in body imaging with GI colleagues and fellows, in addition to spending time at the only breast imaging Center of Excellence in the entire Veterans Health Administration. The Phoenix VA has several practitioners performing interventional work who also coordinate care with colleagues at other local institutions to provide the best outcomes for our veterans. In my off time, I do occasional contractor work at a university-based setting in Florida as well as other practices in the Phoenix region.”

"The abdominal fellowship at Mayo Clinic gave me an extremely comprehensive training of all of the subspecialty MRI techniques and exams. Additionally, I was able to learn from leaders of the field in an environment that was welcoming of questions, which pushed my skills to the next level while remaining a welcoming and fun place to work. I was also able to tailor my fellowship to the other abdominal skills that I needed for my job, including additional training in CT and fluoroscopy. Overall, it was a wonderful experience that prepared me very well for my staff position and I would highly recommend it!”

The theoretical and practical foundation I built at Mayo Clinic is something I rely on in my daily practice, and the fellowship’s rigorous ethos is one I strive to impart to the trainees I work with every day."
