The three-year Family Medicine Residency at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, offers:
- A comprehensive education emphasizing the management and treatment of common problems encountered by family physicians
- An emphasis on treating the whole patient and his or her family on an ongoing basis
- A supportive environment with a well-rounded faculty
- A balance between the opportunities to develop a solid knowledge base in academic and evidence-based medicine and the skills needed to be an outstanding family physician
This program meets the training requirements as defined by the American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM) and is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
After successfully completing this residency, you are eligible to take the Family Medicine Certification Examination offered by ABFM.
The most important sign of the success of any training program is how its graduates fare. Some graduates have pursued academic appointments. One-third of our graduates are practicing in a rural or underserved setting, and one-third of our graduates are practicing obstetrics.
The Family Medicine Residency at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, began training its first resident in 1978. Since then, nearly 270 residents have completed training in our program. Each year, nine residents are welcomed into our residency.
