The Urology Residency at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida, was established in 2000 and fully accredited by the ACGME in 2002. We have been commended for ‘substantial compliance’ by the ACGME each year since 2014. In 2012, the program expanded to two residents per year. Effective June 2020, we have graduated 21 residents.
Mayo Clinic is a world-class healthcare system. I was drawn to the mentorship model of teaching as well as the ability to train under world-class surgeons. Working side-by-side with a consultant for months at a time garnered a level of trust and opportunity that is absent with other training models. Also, the resources and technology of Mayo Clinic are top-notch.
