The Admissions Committee reviews completed applications and selects qualified applicants for on-campus interviews at each of the Mayo Clinic campuses. If you are invited for an on-campus interview, you must be able to attend an interview on-site. We do not offer phone interviews or regional interviews.
- We interview on Mondays and Fridays from September through mid-December.
- If you are selected, an admissions coordinator will work with you to schedule a day to accommodate your schedule.
- You will receive information to arrange either hotel accommodations or stay with a medical student host.
The interview day at Mayo Clinic School of Medicine begins at 8 a.m. with introductions and orientation. Our goal is to provide an informative and enjoyable day for prospective students, featuring open dialogue and lively conversation.
Candidates will also have the opportunity to meet with current students, staff and faculty throughout the day. Each prospective student will have two 30-minute interviews with members of the Admissions Committee.
The interview day includes a tour of campus, a student panel with lunch, and a question-and-answer session with the chair of the Admissions Committee or dean of admissions. Candidates will also have plenty of "explore time" to rest, relax or walk around the extensive Mayo Clinic campus on their own. Scheduled sessions on interview day will be completed by 3 p.m.
The basic components of the interview day are the same in Minnesota, Arizona and Florida, but specific schedule items vary at each campus. More details are provided with the invitation to interview.
