The Office for Diversity promotes diversity in education to ensure Mayo's learning environments offer the added dimension that diverse students and faculty bring to the schools and ultimately to patient care. Eddie L. Greene, M.D., director, Office for Diversity, states "Diversity is essential to Mayo Clinic's goals of attracting, developing and retaining the best people and ultimately providing the best care to every patient, every day."
A diverse health care team brings a range of experiences, perspectives and innovations to deliver the highest quality health care. The College of Medicine, Mayo Clinic actively solicits applications from students representing the breadth and depth of diversity that is prevalent in our patient base and in the communities we serve. The Office for Diversity supports and encourages diversity in Mayo Clinic education programs and careers and designs programs to attract students from diverse backgrounds.
