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% of residents get their first choice in the fellowship match and over 96% match into one of their top-three choices, even in the most competitive subspecialty fellowships.

More than 50% 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.

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

"I am so grateful for the training I received from Mayo Clinic's Internal Medicine Residency Program, which is one of the best in the country. The leadership have created a curriculum that is focused on the trainees' education and creating a broad exposure to every subspecialty, which has made me both a better generalist and hematology/oncology fellow. Mayo Clinic also provided me many opportunities for research and to attend medical conferences for additional education and career building."

“My experiences at Mayo Clinic have given me a deep, thorough grounding in internal medicine, which I have carried with me. My transition to cardiology fellowship was made easy by the wealth of knowledge I acquired during my time at Mayo, elective opportunities in echo and other areas of cardiology, and most importantly, comfort in dealing with complex patients with a multitude of medical problems. I would choose Mayo again for IM residency one thousand times over as training there was one of the best experiences I could have asked for.”

“Internal medicine residency at Mayo Clinic is the reason I felt so prepared as I started fellowship, especially during the ultimate test of being a new ID fellow in the middle of a pandemic. The broad subspecialized training in all disciplines of internal medicine set me apart clinically, with ample opportunities to practice and receive feedback as a medical educator, develop the skills to be a team leader, and participate in focused research training from the incredible mentors I worked with. Mayo Clinic has opened so many doors for me as I pursue my future career and has made me the doctor I am today.”

“The choice to complete the internal medicine residency at Mayo Clinic was the best decision I’ve made in my medical training. The rigorous clinical and research experiences alongside world-renowned mentors have prepared me for a successful career in any setting. Moreover, the focus on evidence-based medicine and quality improvement prepares residents to be leaders in healthcare. If given the opportunity to choose a residency again, I would train at Mayo Clinic without question.“
