I have been here in Minnesota for three weeks now, doing an elective at the Mayo Clinic. It's pretty cold here, but it's Christmas Day today and the snow is starting to melt! Anyways, the place is huge, it's like a factory town for medicine, with the clinic being pretty much the only thing here. That said, it's an efficient well oiled machine for getting things done! Here I am sitting next to the Brothers Mayo on the steps.

There is an interesting professional ethos around here, something I haven't seen elsewhere, not even at Scripps Clinic in San Diego. Maybe it is the Mayo Model of Care, which I found engraved in the museum here. Certainly there is a lot of history around the place.
