Internal Medicine Residency (Minnesota)

This is an exciting time to embark on a career in internal medicine. Genomics and proteomics are revolutionizing our approach to disease and health maintenance. A focus on evidence-based medicine allows us to critically appraise diagnostic and treatment options. Meanwhile, it has never been more important to reflect on our ability to provide cost-effective care to an aging population.

Residency overview

The primary goal of the Mayo Clinic Internal Medicine Residency Program is to provide you with the training, resources and experience to thrive in any of the disciplines that are open to well-trained internists. We train leaders in internal medicine who are setting new standards in patient care and in scientific investigation. We take particular pride in preparing you to be agents of change who, through inquiry or practice improvement, are prepared to advance the science and create the healthcare system of the future. Many are attracted to our program because of the emphasis placed on preparing you to be educators of your patients and your peers within the healthcare community. You will find many opportunities by virtue of your training at Mayo Clinic.


The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education has acknowledged our reputation for excellence in residency training and our commitment to creative education models. We are one of only 18 programs nationwide to be included in the Educational Innovation Program (EIP), which trains residents to practice in the health care system of the future.
