Marriage and Medical School

By Reese Imhof Reese Imhof (@reeseimhof)

by Reese Imhof Being married in medical school has its challenges along with its advantages. My wife Nicole and I had our wedding less than a year before I entered Mayo Clinic School of Medicine. We’ve known each other since our senior year of high school and we lived together in New York, where we are both […]

‘Tis the Season to be Thankful…

By Tyler Brobst Tyler Brobst (@tylerbrobst)

by Sydney Larkin Greetings! Exhausted, post-anatomy first-year here! I’m here to give you some insight into Anatomy, our block structure, and how most of us feel about Mayo’s mandatory lecture policy. Real talk for a second: I’m currently at home in Cincinnati lying on the couch and cuddling with my cat by the fire. It’s […]

We spent a week at the rural Hospital William Allen de Turrialba, which serves local residents and an indigenous Indian population, the Cabécar tribes. Day 1: We were greeted in the pediatric […]

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.

by Jeremie Oliver “It’s going to be a good day today,” were the words of encouragement from our physician leader, Dr. Bachman. I distinctly remember standing at the triage station of our clinic, assembled within a local schoolhouse building, gazing in awe at the hundreds of Nicaraguans grasping the fence with desperation in their faces. Our […]

Advanced Doctoring

By Leah Grengs Leah Grengs (@leahrgr)

During our second year of medical school, students participate in a course called ‘Advanced Doctoring’. The name was at first surprising to me, because as a beginning second year medical student, I still struggled to distinguish a systolic versus diastolic murmur.

The Mayo Culture: A Lasting Legacy

By Amanda Porter Amanda Porter (@amandaporter)

Mayo is one of the most exciting places I have ever been. The novelty of walking through the Peace Plaza staring into the eyes of the Gonda Building still, months later, hasn’t gotten old.

A Snippet of Wellness at Mayo Medical School

By Leah Grengs Leah Grengs (@leahrgr)

Battle’s sign

By Katie Johnson 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.

Spiti Valley

By Vidhushei Yogeswaran 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 […]
