“I have been blown away by the amount of resources and support available to both residents and patients. I imagined a system such as Mayo would be a very well-oiled machine, but it has certainly exceeded my expectations. The environment is very conducive for growing and learning as a young physician.”

“I have multiple levels of support as a female physician — from my wonderful female colleagues and senior residents, mentors in outpatient clinic, and consultants I have worked with during rotations.

“I am on the Internal Medicine Residency Council, where we meet to discuss issues and concerns facing the program. A lot of that discussion ties into trainee wellness. We talk about everything from food options at noon conferences, work-life balance on certain rotations, ways to improve trainee schedules to allow flexibility, to pet therapy time for trainees, and extracurricular activities.”
