Incoming Residents & Fellows

Welcome to the University of Minnesota!  The Graduate Medical Education office looks forward to working with you throughout your training.

This is an exciting and very busy time for you, and our goal is to help you transition successfully into the University and your new program. As an incoming resident or fellow, you will have a number of central onboarding requirements to complete before beginning your new program.  

These training, information, and documentation requirements are issued through a personalized checklist distributed via the Residency Management Suite (RMS).  The checklist will contain detailed instructions, including due dates for each step and who to contact with questions.  When your checklist is ready, you will receive instructions via email for accessing RMS to complete your requirements.

As part of starting a new program at the University, you will also join us at a central orientation session.  You will receive an email invitation in late May or early June with details about the orientation session you will attend.
