Family Medicine Residency (Minnesota)

Career Development

The most important sign of the success of any training program is how its graduates fare. Some graduates have pursued academic appointments. One-third of our graduates are practicing in a rural or underserved setting, and one-third of our graduates are practicing obstetrics.

At the conclusion of the Family Medicine Residency, you may wish to continue your graduate medical education at Mayo Clinic School of Graduate Medical Education. Fellowships are available in preventive medicine and geriatrics. Your program director can provide more information about these opportunities.

Mayo Clinic often recruits staff physicians from its own training programs, so when you successfully complete the Family Medicine Residency, job opportunities may be available at one of Mayo Clinic's group practices.

Here’s what a few of our graduates have to say about their experience in the program.

"Family medicine appealed to me because I enjoy getting to be an intimate part of people’s lives and taking care of the whole person and their family members longitudinally. I love that to do this requires a large breadth of knowledge but still gives you the ability to develop a niche in an area as well."

“I initially came to Mayo out of curiosity. I had never spent time in a large academic center, and many people had told me that primary care was best done in “unopposed” programs. I decided to do a visiting medical school rotation to see what it was like. My experience was amazing! The people, culture, environment, and systems far exceeded anything I had previously encountered. It seemed like everyone I worked with was intelligent, professional, caring, and fun. I knew I wanted those things in my residency.”
