What was the best part of your preliminary surgical internship at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, FL?

The best part was exposure to a wide range of anatomy, especially complex post-surgical anatomy with interesting radiologic correlations. Managing surgical patients was invaluable to understanding what specific information clinicians want from imaging and also how IR fits into their postoperative management and in the care of patients who are poor candidates for surgery. Mostly importantly, there is very strong camaraderie among the residents!

What is the best part about the IR integrated residency at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, FL? 

I love the high faculty-to-resident ratio and how personally invested each consultant is to the resident’s well-being, training, and education. We have a great relationship with our faculty, which fosters a nurturing and comfortable learning environment. Even during a 4:00 a.m. GI bleed case on a Sunday night after a demanding call weekend, there is never any hesitation to teach or pro-actively involve the resident. In addition, our technologists and nurses are incredible, so it honestly feels like a small family here.

Why did you decide to train at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, FL, for your integrated IR residency?

After completing my interview and tour, I knew this institution provided care at the highest level, and invested greatly in the training of residents, nurses, and technicians. And being next to the beach in Jacksonville is great! I remember touring the interventional radiology department and being awestruck at the cases listed for that day. After four years at Mayo Clinic, I can say that my expectations were exceeded.

From the chief residents

Interventional radiology chief residency Ryan Bailey, M.D.Interventional radiology chief resident Jacob Core, D.O.

An ideal interventional radiology residency should have great leadership, respect between all staff, excellent education, exposure to a wide variety of pathology/procedures, and, most importantly, dedication to top-notch patient care.

The interventional radiology department at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville provides expert clinical, diagnostic, and procedural care in a tertiary care setting near the beach! The department is well-staffed and there is an excellent balance between education and autonomy, beginning with learning how to manage consultations, learning vascular access, and procedure planning.

The ESIR and Integrated pathways begin with diagnostic training, which is paramount to becoming a well-rounded interventionalist. Our central EMR and PACS systems enable access to the wealth of clinical data from Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, providing ample additional teaching and research cases. We have, and continue to advocate for, our independent call, which we strongly believe will better prepare us for independent practice. With a limited fellow presence, our rotations are resident-focused with extensive procedure exposure and the opportunity to read and partake in advanced “fellow level” cases without competition.

At Mayo Clinic, we believe the “the needs of the patient come first." This philosophy transcends elsewhere, including the respect between doctors, nurses, and other staff. Our workplace culture, emphasis on resident education, and focus on clinical care make this an ideal place to begin your career in radiology.

We are excited that you are interested in our program and look forward to the opportunity to meet you in person!
