Sanford Medical Education

Developing Exceptional Physicians

Sanford Health is committed to excellence in our medical education programs. As a major teaching site for medical residency and fellowship programs, Sanford Health trains over 300 residents and fellows every year along with nearly 500 medical students.

Through our programs, we give developing physicians the resources they need to thrive and help them build lasting mentorships and relationships with experts in their field. If you’re a student looking to gain hands-on clinical experience, Sanford Health’s medical education programs are for you.

Advancing medical education is one of the new Sanford Health initiatives supported by a $300 million gift from philanthropist Denny Sanford. In rural areas, recruitment and retention of health care professionals can be a challenge. This gift enables Sanford Health to double its graduate medical education opportunities and expand our recruitment and retention initiatives.
