Mayo is committed to the education and training of physicians. The Division of General Internal Medicine (GIM) has helped train resident physicians and fellows in Mayo Graduate School of Medical Education (MGSME) programs for many years. GIM fellows and internal medicine resident physicians provide ongoing care for local and regional patients seeking primary or ongoing continuity care, under the supervision of GIM faculty physicians. The Resident Continuity Clinic is part of the Regional Medicine Practice.
What is the difference between a resident, a fellow, and a faculty physician?
Resident physicians have completed medical school and have earned an M.D. degree. They practice medicine in a supervised setting for three years to complete training in general internal medicine. Fellows have completed an internal medicine residency and are pursuing further training in internal medicine subspecialties. Mayo faculty are Mayo Clinic staff physicians who have completed training and hold faculty appointments at Mayo Graduate School of Medical Education.
