About Mayo Clinic Health System
Mayo Clinic Health System (MCHS) is a group of more than 75 medical clinics and 1,100 medical providers across Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa working together to solve problems affecting the health of individuals and communities.
MCHS is organized into a network of 12 organizations, each affiliated with multiple regional hospitals, clinics and other health care facilities. Located primarily in rural areas, MCHS sites are independently managed, physician-led community-centered facilities that have access to the resources of Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. Primary care specialties such as pediatrics, family medicine, internal medicine and integrative medicine account for 40 percent of MCHS physicians.
About MCHS research
Research studies reviewed by the Mayo Clinic Institutional Review Board (IRB) as well as other IRBs take place within MCHS. The MCHS Research Operations Management Team is charged with providing oversight of the creation and management of the infrastructure necessary for research in MCHS to understand, optimally treat and ultimately predict, prevent and cure disease in alignment with Mayo Clinic's overall mission and research strategic plan.
