The goal of the Division of Preventive and Occupational Medicine at Mayo Clinic is to reduce the medical, financial and occupational burdens of preventable disease and injury through prevention, screening and education. Specialists are trained in internal medicine or family medicine as well as preventive, occupational and/or aviation medicine. Twenty-two specialists provide care in Rochester. Several of our physicians are board-certified in preventive, occupational and/or aviation medicine.
In addition to clinical practice, administrative responsibilities and research interests, Mayo Clinic's faculty members are committed to teaching and facilitating the growth of medical knowledge. Faculty in the Division of Preventive and Occupational Medicine are actively involved in public health, occupational medicine, aviation medicine, education, administration, quality improvement and health communications.
Advisors and Mentors
You will be assigned a faculty mentor who can provide comprehensive educational advice and personal support. Your advisor also will serve as a contact point, introducing you and your family to Rochester and the Mayo Clinic system.
Many prominent professors visit Mayo Clinic each year. They present their work during noon and/or morning lectures and participate in hospital rounds. You will be encouraged to take full advantage of these opportunities.
