Mayo Clinic School of Medicine

By Ling Werner lingwerner

The Medical School is going through many changes this year: A new school dean was named this Spring, Fredric Meyer, M.D., the interviews for the opening of the Arizona Campus in 2017, and now the change of the medical school name to Mayo Clinic School of Medicine. There were several considerations that went into revising […]

A Snippet of Wellness at Mayo Medical School

By Leah Grengs leahrgr

Medical school is stressful; there is no way around this blatant fact. You had the college thing perfected, otherwise you would not have gotten into medical school. Then 50% of you find yourself somewhere you have never been… below average in your classes. In addition to class, life happens and your time stretches even thinner […]

Battle’s sign

By Katie Johnson katieljo

Out of the 100+ patients I have seen and helped manage over the course of this month, the one I will remember most was not even a patient of mine. Nearing the end of the shift, I overheard rumblings about a patient coming in. The words “subdural hematoma”, “skull fracture”, “NAT”, and “CPS” were thrown […]

Spiti Valley

By Vidhushei Yogeswaran vidhusheiyogeswaran

by Vid Yogeswaran When I was in the Tabo monastery in the Himalayas this past summer, I had this moment of clarity. I could see one road ahead of me, and at the end all I could see was that regardless of where it takes me, I wanted to connect patients and changing health perceptions […]

Be thirsty for knowledge and hungry for food, because professors do more than just teach

By jessicasaw jessicasaw

by Jessica Saw I’ve always valued close relationships with faculty. Some people think getting invited to a professor’s house for dinner is downright awkward while others think it is outright awesome. I am part of the latter. Part of the reason I chose MMS was its small class size, which enables closer relationships between students […]

Brains at the Beach

By amelia ameliacva

by Amelia Van Handel As I left my parked car behind and started running along the beach, my shoes and socks were instantly filled with gritty sand. It was mid-April and the weather was a balmy 75 degrees, even in the late evening. I could smell the briny salt in the air and was so […]

My time as a Muzungu

By Kristen Sessions kristenlse

As the physician quizzed me on the appropriate treatment for malnutrition, Jessie barely reacted.

Dorothy

By Lydia Wheeler lydiapwh

Her hair was like black licorice, cold, curled, and still. Her lips, though dry and cracking, were full and puckered like a peach. She had the bone structure of an African goddess, one girls would kill for nowadays. Her nose, though slim and straight had a slight bend in the middle, only adding to the […]
