Meet Our Residents

A psychiatry resident talks with patient.

Our residents and faculty foster a collegial environment and education-focused culture that provides an inclusive learning experience. About 50% of our residents are typically female and a little over 16% of our trainees identify as an underrepresented minority. Training can be challenging, but our program is close-knit and each resident brings a dedication to providing stellar patient care as well as a collaborative learning experience.

Our current 2020-2021 psychiatry residents come from all over the world, with a total of 35 residents in training at any point in time. See what a few of them have to say about our program.

Why did you choose Mayo Clinic?

"The program training is exceptional as you get exposure to a range of units tailored to patients with particular needs and the work-culture is unique due to the patient-centered care approach and the multidisciplinary teams. But the most prominent thing about the program is Dr. Swintak and Dr. Somers; they truly care about our wellbeing and professional development."

Why did you choose Mayo Clinic?

"After interview day, it was crystal clear to me Mayo is the perfect fit. The curriculum and the learning opportunities are immense, but the values of the institution, the sense of community and the camaraderie among the team stood out to me the most."
