by Sherry-Ann Brown, MD, PhD
I tell people all the time that I have been in training since I was three years old, and I have now found proof!
And all those years of training from three years old till now
has brought me to here!
Now, the big question on everyone’s minds is,
“What is Sherry-Ann going to do when she leaves Mayo Clinic this June?”
Well, when I leave Rochester MN, the first thing I will pursue is a medical education mission for 10 days in Cuba. I have been doing international medical missions since 2003.
Then when I return from Cuba, I will proceed to a community health medical mission in Philadelphia,
“the city of brotherly love”!
Then if my abstract is accepted, I will likely be at the inaugural
Mayo Clinic Cardiology Artificial Intelligence CME conference
in San Francisco California!
After that, I will co-chair a dinner symposium at the National Medical Association conference in Honolulu, Hawaii.
So, what am I going to do when I get back from Hawaii? Well, this is the best view I have had in my seven years in Rochester (left); but this is more like what I am used to, growing up in Jamaica (right; click photo to open a new window to watch a video of the serene running water).
So, how could I get something like this without leaving the mainland United States? I will go hang out with my godmother in Florida,
where it looks like this!
Meanwhile, I will be continuing discussions with a couple of academic institutions recruiting me for a physician scientist position in
And continuing in national eadership in the American College of Cardiology, American Heart Association,
Association of Black Cardiologists, and so on!
Now, you may know that I led Mayo Clinic's and the American College of Cardiology's FITs-on-the-go program and also the @MayoClinicCV Twitter account. You may also know that I am also an accomplished poet
