Women's Health Track

The Women's Health track of the General Internal Medicine Fellowship was developed in honor of Julie A. Abbott, M.D.

The mission for women's health care at Mayo Clinic is to provide the best care for women through integrated programs in clinical care, research, and education.

The Women's Health track includes clinical rotations focused on interdisciplinary training in the prevention and treatment of diseases prevalent in women through the adult life span. Fellows have the opportunity to rotate through our interdisciplinary clinics, including the Women's Menopause and Sexual Health Clinic and the Breast Diagnostic Clinic. Fellows also have the opportunity to rotate through the many specialties at Mayo Clinic, with focus on specific issues that pertain to the health and well-being of women.

This track also provides opportunities for mentored research through our Women's Health Research Center, which was created to advance scientific discoveries to improve the health of women through all life stages. We provide additional training in research methods, with the ability to attain your Master's in Clinical Research through our Center for Clinical and Translational Science.

The Women's Health track was created more than a decade ago to develop leaders in the exciting and rapidly evolving field of women's health and to improve health care outcomes for women.

To be eligible for the Women's Health track, applicants must have successfully completed postgraduate training in an accredited U.S. or other similarly qualified international program in one of the following specialties:

  • Internal medicine
