Your residency or fellowship appointment at Mayo School of Graduate Medical Education is contingent upon successful completion of national and Minnesota background studies.
You should initiate and complete the background studies promptly after April 15 of your appointment year.
There are two exceptions to having to complete the background studies immediately after April 15 of your appointment year:
- If you don't have a Social Security number, you'll need to wait until you receive a Social Security number before completing the national background study.
- If you don't have a U.S. address, you'll need to wait until you have one before completing the Minnesota background study.
