Providing the highest quality education for the next generation of physicians, training the next generation of academic teachers and researchers and promoting the scholarship of education are central goals of the Department of Medicine (DOM).

The education programs within the DOM are uniquely situated to take advantage of the Twin Cities’ advanced, well-organized health care market. This market has an abundance of clinical training sites including the University of Minnesota Medical Center.

Our programs emphasize choices in curriculum and we consider our students, residents and fellows to be adult learners. We also value maintaining a balance between work and personal life and value a diverse, exciting and supportive educational environment. With exciting new leadership and curricula built upon a prestigious academic tradition, we now seek the nation's most talented, thoughtful, and forward-looking learners for our medical student and graduate medical education programs.
