What is something you love most about this program?

The depth and breadth of cases you see every day is something I love about this program. You see plenty of bread-and-butter cases as well as zebras and you feel comfortable with both by the time you finish training. It has been very helpful to not just read about diseases in textbooks but work through actual cases on clinical rotations with the benefit of feedback and teaching points from staff. Multidisciplinary conferences, such as the musculoskeletal tumor conference, endometriosis rounds, or GI rad-path conference, also add to this rich clinical experience.

When selecting your career path, how did you come to decide on your field?

What brought me to radiology was a passion for what happens behind the scene in medicine. Radiology involves direct interaction with all the other areas in medicine and with many different spectrums of patients, acting as a fundamental key for untangling a difficult diagnosis, treatment planning, treatment response, and prognosis. There is medicine before and after radiology.

What is work-life balance like at Mayo Clinic?

One thing that I found unique when I first came to Mayo Clinic was the combination of a world-class academic institution in the setting of a medium-sized city. You have the advantage of having an incredibly convenient, family-oriented city without any compromise in your training. This helps maximize your free time and pursue interests outside of medicine.

What is it like to live in Rochester?

Rochester has been a wonderful place to live and train. We have many amenities of a large city without the typical headaches that so often accompany them. My commute to work is never more than 15 minutes, the housing is affordable, and the public school system is excellent. There are great opportunities for the outdoor enthusiast in and near Rochester and seven major league sports teams just an hour or so away in Minneapolis and St. Paul. This community has been great for many reasons and will be missed when my training is complete.

Is there anything that surprised you at Mayo Clinic?

I was surprised by the dedicated subspecialization of some rotations. There are days where my assignment is MSK MRI only or something more specialized such as prostate MRI. This is a unique setup compared to other programs and really allows you to get focused repetition with difficult examinations that are commonplace at Mayo Clinic. The uniquely specialized workflow allows for an ideal setting for patient care as well as resident education.

What is something you love most about this program?

Mayo Clinic provides a training environment which focuses on your development as a radiologist. Learning from subspecialty experts in a practice with complex pathology and a high case volume has provided training second to none. Radiologists work closely with multidisciplinary teams at Mayo Clinic, which offers unique perspectives and opportunities to learn from experts of other fields while providing patient care. Mayo Clinic also has unlimited resources and opportunities for you to pursue your academic interests through research and didactics.

From the chief residents 

Thank you for your interest in Mayo Clinic radiology! We would like to share some of our favorite aspects of our Diagnostic Radiology Residency program before we are lucky enough to meet you on your interview day.

Mayo Clinic radiology is unique in many ways. First, being at a large tertiary care center, the expansiveness of the diseases you are exposed to is second to none. We are a ground breaking center of new technologies and innovative procedures.

At our institution, you will work with over 200 staff radiologists, many who are leaders in their fields, to help you develop into the best radiologist you can be. Along with the independent call schedule, this program will leave you extremely well prepared for whatever challenges await you after residency.

Finally, the Mayo Clinic culture of putting the needs of the patient first permeates through the radiologists, clinicians, nurses, technologists, and trainees, making it a rewarding and pleasant four years.

We look forward to the opportunity to meet you in person!
