Participant, Business Consulting Fellowship

Angie M. Bergsten: I chose a training program at Mayo Clinic because of the resources that would be available to me as a trainee. I had access to a lot of different classes in a wide variety of different areas, and also I just think the team spirit at Mayo Clinic really benefited me as a trainee here.

Having a job that is mentally stimulating and also provides you a great work-life balance … working for an employer that gives you great benefits, even as a trainee, really makes all the difference. When you're happy at work, you're just a happier person all the way around.
