The Internal Medicine Residency offers a unique academic mentoring program starting in the PGY-1 year that creates opportunities and connections for future career success. Mentorship is tailored to individual resident interest and goals.
In addition to traditional academic scholarship, residents are active in quality improvement, safety initiatives and curriculum development. Our residents are very successful in producing peer-reviewed publications and national presentations. Mayo Clinic provides 10 weekdays a year per resident for trip time, in addition to regular vacation time, for residents to present their research at national and regional meetings. Mayo also provides $1,750 per trip to cover costs in addition to registration fees.
All residents become bronze certified in Mayo Clinic's Quality Academy with formal teaching of quality metrics, and have the opportunity to become silver and gold certified. Over the last two years, 100 percent of our graduating classes have published one or more research papers during residency, and all have participated in quality studies during residency.
All teaching faculty and senior residents undergo training to improve teaching skill and become more effective educators. The interactive sessions are held periodically through the year and incorporate concepts related to learning climate, evaluation and feedback, and learner assessment.
