If you are enrolled in an affiliated physician assistant program, you are eligible to participate in the Physician Assistant Clinical Rotation (internship) at Mayo Clinic's campus in Jacksonville, Florida, by making arrangements through your college program director.

You must successfully complete the required pre-professional and professional college course work as stipulated by your college or university before you are eligible to complete the clinical rotation. A general surgery rotation is required prior to a surgical specialty clinical rotation.

Technical standards

In addition to general qualities, you will be assessed for:

  • Observation, communication and motor function
  • Intellectual-conceptual, integrative and quantitative abilities
  • Behavioral and social attributes
  • Tactical and somatic sensation
  • Functional use of vision and hearing

Applicants will be judged not only on their scholastic accomplishments but also on their physical and emotional capacities to meet the requirements of the program's curriculum and graduate as skilled and effective practitioners, with reasonable accommodations, if applicable.

Diagnostic equipment and tools may provide technological compensation for some disabilities, but the candidate should be able to perform in an independent manner. Applicants seeking accommodations should initiate their request with the program director.
