Camaraderie with Fellow Residents/Fellows
Resident/Fellow culture and friends will continue to grow in our program. As a new
program, we don’t have veteran residents in our specialty area, but UND does have
a variety of other established residents/fellows in programs such as Transitional Year, Internal Medicine, Psychiatry, Family Medicine, Surgery, Orthopedic Surgery, Geriatric Medicine, and Hematology/Oncology. More than 100 residents/fellows in these various programs are within the Sanford
Health system in Fargo, N.D.
|Cole Amundson, IM PGY1
||The UND IM program is one of a kind. There's never a doubt that my education and quality,
patient-centered care isn't the focus of my day. The people you're surrounded by at
this program make you feel like you are in the best place.
|I'm very happy with my decision to complete residency at UND and live in the Fargo/Moorhead
area. The small size of the program allows for your co-residents to become like a
second family, and the attendings that we work with become great mentors throughout
the years of training. We receive ample learning opportunities in the bread-and-butter
cases of internal medicine while getting exposure to rare and interesting pathologies
at a large tertiary care center. With the end of my residency training drawing near,
I feel very prepared to take the next step as an attending after training at UND.
|Residency at UND provides great training opportunities in a fast-paced environment
and ability to train with a wide variety of generalist and specialist attending physicians.
You get the chance to work at a Level 1 Trauma Center that is a large referral center
for 100's of miles around the four+ state area granting you access to advanced pathologies
that are not always seen. This program also offers flexibility in scheduling so you
can tailor your rotations to your interests. Aside from that, Fargo is a moderate-sized
city with most of the amenities one may need, though it has a small-town feel where
you will see friends, residents, and attendings at community events.
|Jenna Gassman, 2023 IM Graduate
||Close-knit feeling amongst residents, attending physicians and staff. The program
leadership is always available, personable, positive, and responsive to feedback.

|I like that the morning and evening commutes are non-existent for traffic jams. I
like that there are numerous activities to find around the city of Fargo and Moorhead,
Minn. (which is right across the river).
