Program description

The Internal Medicine Residency at Mayo Clinic's campus in Arizona provides superb fundamental training for a career in internal medicine or any of its many subspecialties. We take pride in our well-trained internists who excel in their careers in general or subspecialty medicine in both private practice and academic settings.

The curriculum provides a strong core with outstanding opportunities for personal adaptation through ample research and elective time, coupled with the strong mentors and resources of Mayo Clinic.

Our program's affiliations with other Mayo campuses in Rochester, Minnesota, and Jacksonville, Florida, along with Maricopa Medical Center, Arizona State University and Phoenix Indian Medical Center, enhance the available opportunities. The Phoenix and Scottsdale areas provide ideal weather in a growing and vibrant location.

However, we are most proud of our residents — past, present and future. We invite you to explore our website and contact us for any additional information.

  • Emphasis on academic and scholarly achievement
