Annually, Mayo Clinic Arizona evaluates thousands of patients with diverse solid tumors and hematological disorders. In addition, Mayo evaluates a significant number of patients with nonmalignant hematologic disorders, including thrombocytosis, thrombocytopenia, neutropenia and anemia. You will play an important role in the care of these patients.
Mayo Clinic actively participates in clinical trials of newer therapies for malignant disorders, including many Phase I and Phase II trials. In addition to intramural protocols, other trials involve cooperative efforts with a variety of groups.
You will be assigned a faculty adviser who can provide comprehensive educational advice and personal support. Your adviser also will serve as a contact point, introducing you and your family to Phoenix/Scottsdale and the Mayo Clinic system.
