What attracted you to Mayo Clinic for fellowship training?

"The Mayo Clinic Nephrology Fellowship Programs affords numerous opportunities to explore academic, clinical, and educational career paths all supported by leaders in their field. The program is three years with the second year open for research opportunities that can be tailored to your interests. Additionally, you may pursue a master's and/or Certificate of Clinical and Translational Sciences during the research year. Mayo will even help orient your career toward education or global health efforts. If you can dream it, then the Mayo Nephrology Fellowship will do all that they can to support you. The options and level of support and choices can be overwhelming at first, but there is ample help to navigate through to select the best options for you."

What is living in Rochester, Minnesota, like for you?

"Living in Rochester has been great for my family as the city is very family friendly. There are plenty of things to do for all age groups. It does get cold in the winter but that does not seem to stop people from being active. The area is also growing as it is a destination medical center, so food and entertainment options are constantly being added. The Twin Cities are an easy drive north, which has everything else that you could want."
