The Mayo Clinic Center for Innovation's William Drenttel Innovation Fellowship offers a unique opportunity to take part in transforming the experience and delivery of health care at the source of innovation.

The fellowship began in 2012 and provides fellows with opportunities to learn from and participate in the center's work as we listen to people and truly understand their needs, and then look for options to create better health together.

The research fellow will ideally possess an area or areas of expertise that expand the core skills of the Center for Innovation, helping Mayo Clinic better understand and address the challenges and opportunities in transforming the experience and delivery of health care.

The fellowship typically lasts six to 12 months. This is a hybrid model, which includes working remotely following on-site project(s) initiation with up to 90 days on site as a research collaborator. Candidates should hold a doctoral degree(s) and currently be professionals or faculty in a complementary field.

Begin your application by emailing us a letter of interest, resume and portfolio (if applicable).

The letter of interest should address these questions:

  • What area(s) of expertise and experience will you bring to the Center for Innovation?
  • What would you primarily like to change in the experience and delivery of health care?
  • How do you envision your ideal career trajectory?

Applicants should use "William Drenttel Innovation Fellowship applicant" in the email subject line and are informed of their status on an ongoing basis without a predetermined start and completion date throughout the year. The William Drenttel Innovation Fellowship offers local housing but does not offer a stipend for living expenses.
