The most important indicator of the success of a training program is found in the outcomes of the graduates upon completion of their training. The Internal Medicine Residency has been fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) with a 10-year accreditation cycle (the maximum).
Mayo residents are highly successful in obtaining the fellowship of their choice. Over 70 percent of residents get their first choice in the fellowship match and over 96 percent match into one of their top-three choices, even in the most competitive subspecialty fellowships.
More than 50 percent of Mayo graduates are in academic positions throughout the U.S.
Historically, two-thirds of the graduates from Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester have entered subspecialty training. Graduates pursuing subspecialty careers will find that Mayo's reputation opens the door to opportunities for fellowship training at the most prestigious and competitive programs.
