Program Director's Welcome
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.
Mayo Clinic prides itself on a strong commitment to medical education while providing compassionate care to every patient it serves. Our emblem, the Mayo Clinic "triple shield," symbolizes the three key areas of our focus: Education, Patient Care, and Research. As a member of our internal medicine residency program, you are joining a team of professionals who are dedicated to discovery and life-long learning that is motivated by the promise to provide the highest quality medical care.
By carefully reviewing this Website, you will learn about the structure of our program and our training environment. Those who visit our department quickly notice the dedication of our faculty and the spirit of our residents. This is a group that people want to join and emulate.
