 Chris Stephenson

Hello and welcome to Mayo! I'm Chris, one of your Chief Residents. I grew up in southern Illinois and completed my undergraduate training at Washington University in St. Louis, my medical school at Southern Illinois University, and residency here at Mayo Clinic. My scholarly interests include medical education and point of care ultrasound in Internal Medicine.


I moved to Rochester three years ago with my wife, Jen. She's a kindergarten teacher at Rochester Public Schools. During my free time, you can find me cycling or kayaking. Rochester has amazing bike trails and there are some great rivers close by to explore. I also enjoy performing music, playing games, spending time with friends, and watching the St. Louis Cardinals win. We're looking forward to meeting you all in a few weeks!
