Mayo Clinic offers a Preventive Medicine Fellowship Program in Rochester, Minnesota, to train physicians for specialization in general preventive medicine and public health. This 24-month program is designed to prepare physicians for leadership roles in academic preventive medicine, clinical preventive medicine, health-care management, clinical epidemiology, and public health at the federal, state, or local level.
Accreditation and certification
The Preventive Medicine training program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and leads to eligibility for certification from the American Board of Preventive Medicine.
The Preventive Medicine training program began in 1978, and since that time more than 30 physicians have completed training. It is anticipated that two to three fellows will complete training in this program annually.
