Anybody know anything about the job market in Minneapolis? Are groups hiring right now?

not super hot right now. I just signed a contract with a group for July 2010, but others in the area have had trouble. The big groups seem to be overhired and most of the groups have some sort of bias about where they get their docs from (some like Wisconsin, some like Mayo, etc). The jobs seem pretty kick ass, however, when they are available. The groups include Twin Cities anesthesia (University hospital, Riverside hospital, Regions hospital), the United group (united, SP childrens, Woodwinds, St Johns, St Joes), Abbott Northwestern, Mercy/Unity, Methodist (park nicollet), North Memorial, Southdale, HCMC and the VA. I'd just start with any alumni from your program in the area, then start cold calling the recruiting folks at the various groups. Lots will tell you it's too early and they don't know their needs yet. That's what I was told when I interviewed, but a few months later they had an opening and called me up.
PM me if you have any questions.

Anyone know about the need for cardiac fellowship trained guys in Minneapolis? Is it possible to do hearts there without a fellowship?
