Mayo Clinic Residents and Medical Students

  • 4th-year Resident Spine Service – 3 months rotation split between Dr. Crandall, Dr. Datta, and Dr. Chang.  The emphasis is on diagnosis, treatment plans, and learning patient management pre-op, in surgery, and post-op.  The Resident’s knowledge base related to spine is significantly expanded.
  • Orthopedic Intern Spine Service – 1 month rotation split between Dr. Crandall, Dr. Datta, and Dr. Chang.  The emphasis is on mastering the history and physical exam for spine patients, and introduction to patient management for common spinal disorders.  General concepts regarding patient care are taught.
  • Mayo Medial Students – 1 week or longer rotations are possible to experience the clinical care of patients with spinal pathology.  This is typically a mixture of clinic and surgery.
  • Weekly Spine Conference – Held every Monday morning at 7:30am in the Tempe office conference room; the 4th year Resident is responsible for presenting a 30-minute topical review using PowerPoint, as assigned on the schedule of topics to be covered during the rotation.  Interns and visiting Medical Students are also encouraged to attend.  The Fellow will present the week’s surgical cases after the Resident talk is concluded.
  • Research opportunities – Interested Residents and Medical Students can participate in one or more research projects or develop a project of their own.  Faculty guidance is always available.
  • Vacations, Time off – Time off for Fellowship interviews during the spine rotation is not a problem.  Coordinate requests for time off through the Residency Office at Mayo, who will then notify the Spine Center of the time needed off.  Vacation time during the spine rotation is also not a problem.
