"I chose Mayo Clinic because I believe its mission and vision align with how I see myself in the future. Choosing a residency that is right for you is fundamental since this decision will influence many subsequent career decisions, in both tangible and intangible ways. Mayo Clinic is the keystone of health care in the world, and a unique institution where you can work with people that are top-notch physicians. My interview experience with both Pediatrics and Child Neurology teams was thought provoking. Everything was organized in such a thoughtful way, and I was impressed by how genuine and caring everyone was."

"One huge benefit of being a child neurology resident at Mayo is the personalized career planning and preparation that is provided. Several faculty have specifically helped pave the way for my future by identifying educational programs for me to attend, introducing me to leaders in my chosen field, and guiding my research. The goal has been for me to learn as much as I can about my area of interest while also building an excellent CV. Also, the curriculum exposed us to a broad range of child neurology early, so I was able to find my passion within the field."

"My mentor through the mentorship program has been great about giving me advice on electives and other opportunities to pursue; but, more importantly, all of the consultants take an interest in mentoring residents. Everyone here will make time to meet with residents, so if your interests change, it is not hard to have multiple mentors and find someone that can help you navigate future plans, especially if you want to do a fellowship."
