How is Mayo Clinic helping you reach your career goals?

Everyone is very supportive of the career path you choose. In my fifth and sixth year, I will be able to rotate at many different children’s hospitals, which is not available at a lot of other programs.

What has been most rewarding about your training so far?

The most rewarding part of my training has been the opportunity to be involved in the care of some of the most complex patients in the hospital. I am also very grateful to learn each day from some of the leading neurosurgeons in their respective fields.

What attracted you to Mayo Clinic?

I grew up hearing about Mayo Clinic all the time, and when I had the opportunity to interview for residency, I fell in love with the patient focus. All of the physicians believe in the mentality that the needs of the patient come first. This completely put Mayo Clinic at the top of my list.
