Through the alumni association you will:

Life after fellowship or residency

Each year, the alumni association and Mayo Clinic School of Graduate Medical Education co-sponsor "Life After Fellowship or Residency: Transition to Practice." This evening seminar provides Mayo Clinic residents and fellows in their final two years of training with information about successfully transitioning from a training program to a clinical or academic practice.

The curriculum includes topics such as financial management, interviewing skills, employment contracts and work-life balance. See events and programs on the Mayo Clinic Alumni Association website for seminar presentations from previous years.
