Mayo Clinic has a strong history of training great clinical and academic general surgeons. I loved the community at Mayo Clinic and the thorough dedication to patient care: the attendings, the nurses, and the janitors have all chosen to be at Mayo Clinic because the patients come first. The community was dedicated to teaching residents, especially surgeons-in-training, and the small faculty-to-resident ratio and apprenticeship model lend to great mentor relationships.
