The most important indicator of the success of a training program is found in the outcomes of the graduates after completing their training. 

Mayo residents are highly successful in obtaining the fellowship of their choice; 40% of graduates from our Urology Residency have completed or are currently completing a fellowship. Additionally, 67% of our graduates are in private or group practice and 20% of our graduates have joined the Mayo Clinic staff in Jacksonville or are in academic practice. 

Words from past alumni

Our graduates love the Mayo Clinic mentorship model, one-on-one training with consultants, the great work/life balance, and the camaraderie among co-residents.

What attracted you to Mayo Clinic?

The mentorship model was the first thing that attracted me to Mayo Clinic during my experience on an away rotation. The one-on-one training with consultants results in a surgical and clinical experience that is second to none. The resident camaraderie, mentorship, and overall training experience made me confident that the program would help me succeed in either a private or academic setting.

Describe the work/life balance of the program.

The program had a very desirable work/life balance. All of the consultants, nurses, office staff, and co-residents were a second family to my family. We worked hard and learned together frequently, but also got together for all sorts of occasions away from the clinic. I really miss the cohesiveness and camaraderie we had during my time there.

How has Mayo Clinic’s mentorship model impacted your training?

The mentorship model allows for early trust from attending to resident, which manifests as very early autonomy. The faculty you work with are phenomenal and truly care about you as a person. Now, as a pediatric urologist at a top-ranked academic institution, I am proud of the training I received at Mayo Clinic. Anyone looking at the program would be fortunate to train there.
