We are thrilled that you are interested in our program. At the University of Minnesota, we take pride in our inclusive and supportive learning environment that encourages you to explore all that internal medicine training affords. 

Our program provides excellent clinical training, ample research opportunities in both basic science and clinical research with world-renowned faculty, a dedicated quality improvement curriculum, and training pathways targeting residents’ specific career goals. Each of these experiences help our residents to explore their passions and interests and become the clinicians, scientists, and educators they aim to be.

Our residents, faculty, and staff work together in a collaborative, inspiring learning environment. We are advocates for health and equity, in medicine and in life outside the hospital. While our program stands out in many ways, our people, our education, and our drive to discover are exemplary in what they offer to our trainees.
