At the conclusion of the Internal Medicine Residency, you may wish to continue your graduate medical education at Mayo Clinic School of Graduate Medical Education.
The Internal Medicine Residency has workshops every year devoted to career planning and fellowship applications. These workshops include subspecialty program directors and program administrators, as well as residents who have recently completed the interview trail. Our residency is very successful in matching in competitive fellowships. Our faculty is very active in supporting resident success in achieving each resident's fellowship of choice.
In addition, there are mock interviews available and a session on curriculum vitae preparation. Residents have advisers from the pool of core faculty, associate program directors, as well as academic mentors.
If you’re accepted for a fellowship, you continue to receive in-depth, daily, one-on-one training with a consultant. You also have the opportunity to increase your own supervisory and administrative skills.
Advancement opportunities for this program are continually expanding to include new areas of specialization, including quality improvement, research, education, and leadership.
- The Clinician-Investigator Training Program, which provides an integrated, comprehensive educational research experience. The program includes six months of research during PGY-3 and a fellowship position of your choice at Mayo Clinic.
- If you’re interested in leadership, the healthcare administration and leadership program includes resident representative spots on institutional committees.
- If your passion is education, Mayo Clinic offers “Residents as Teachers” training sessions and the Mayo Clinic Education Academy.
- Mayo Clinic Quality Academy offers gold, silver, and bronze certifications for residents interested in quality and patient safety metrics.
