Department and Faculty
Clinical and research faculty members in the Department of Internal Medicine are committed to teaching and the growth of medical knowledge. Faculty members at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, publish and lecture extensively and are well-regarded in their fields. Residents have direct access to these individuals throughout the Internal Medicine Residency.
Scholarly productivity for Department of Internal Medicine faculty averages more than 2,100 original peer-reviewed publications each year and more than 300 book chapters, editorials and review articles each year. This level of faculty scholarship provides a rich environment for resident research and contributes to a high level of resident productivity.
Advisers and mentors
Every resident is assigned faculty advisers who can provide comprehensive educational advice and personal support. The advisers serve as personal mentors throughout the residency. We also have a mentor-mentee program that allows established residents to assist incoming residents with transitioning to Rochester and Mayo Clinic.
The Department of Internal Medicine invites scores of academic faculty members to visit Mayo Clinic each year. They present their work at Medical Grand Rounds and other conferences, as well as participate in hospital rounds. In addition, Internal Medicine residents host a visiting professor of their choice annually. Residents are encouraged to take full advantage of these learning opportunities.
