“As the excitement of beginning my nephrology fellowship at Mayo Clinic reaches its peak, I feel compelled to take a pause and look back at the last three years of my life. I can say with a deep sense of satisfaction that the three years of internal medicine residency at Mercy Catholic Medical Center have been among the most productive and gratifying years of my life.
I have received comprehensive, high quality didactic teaching during noon conferences, grand rounds and morning reports along with gaining rich hands on clinical experience. Sheer breath of the variety of pathology and diversity of patient population that I got exposed to at the two hospital campuses of MCMC has been mind-boggling.
As a resident I got abundant opportunities to participate in academic activities like QI projects, case reports, journal clubs, management conferences, M&M conferences and poster presentations at various local and national meets. Everyone here has been friendly, helpful and has contributed significantly to make my experience a positive and a memorable one. The program trains you well for both inpatient hospitalist medicine as well as outpatient office-based practice in addition to encouraging and supporting the fellowship endeavors.
In summary, the ideal combination of a warm, family like environment with the huge variety of clinical exposure and abundance of academic opportunities sets MCMC apart from many other similar sized programs and I recommend it highly to all the prospective future residents.”
