Sorry to start yet another one of these threads. I'm an M1 at the moment and I am interested in IM. I read an article the other day about how medicine is practiced at the Mayo Clinic and was very impressed. My question is what type of Step 1 scores should one shoot for in order to be competetive for a residency there? If it means anything my medical school is the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. We've matched people into internal medicine at Johns Hopkins in the past, so I know it's possible to match at the Mayo Clinic from here, but I just need some idea of how good I'd really have to be. By the way, this is the article that I read: http://www.fastcompany.com/online/23/totteam.html P.S. I really have no problem with the location either, as Rochester is very similar to every town I've ever lived in from what I gather.
