"One of the signs of a truly educated people and a broadly educated nation is lack of prejudice."
Charles H. Mayo, M.D. - 1926
Mayo Clinic Founder
Mayo Clinic's College of Medicine promotes diversity and the added dimension and perspective that diverse students bring to each of its schools and ultimately to patient care. Aspects of diversity include, but are not limited to, race, color, creed, religion, gender, age, national origin, marital status, sexual orientation, disability, military service, and socio-economic status.
The goal of the College of Medicine is to create a learning environment where individual differences are valued, allowing all staff and students to contribute to and develop their understanding of local and global communities
The College of Medicine strives to serve patients, families and one another with respect, concern, courtesy and responsiveness. A climate that nurtures and supports the fullest contributions of everyone is essential to Mayo Clinic's success in patient care, education and research. Creating and sustaining this climate are the responsibilities of all who provide service and train at Mayo Clinic.
