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.
The University of Minnesota Relocation Assistance Program is available to help ease the transition of moving to a new community. They provide information on moving companies, housing, child and elder care, school systems, diversity, and community resources, as well as job search services for spouses and partners. (Financial assistance for relocation is not provided.)
Twin Cities Living Magazine offers free digital and print copies of their extensive relocation guide.
Equity & diversity information
The Office for Equity and Diversity (OED), along with the University Libraries (UL), maintains this linked list of resources about equity and diversity. The goal is to support on-going education about the histories, theories, and lived experiences of members of marginalized and underrepresented communities.
