All students are accepted through Mayo Graduate School in Rochester, Minn. Thesis research may be performed at Mayo Clinic campuses in Minnesota, Arizona or Florida. All course work is taught at the Minnesota campus, though classes are available by videoconference at the Arizona and Florida campuses for registered students who wish to study at these locations.
Mayo Clinic in Arizona opened in 1987 as a premier academic medical center in the southwestern U.S., where medical research and education are fully integrated with the delivery of the highest quality patient care. Campuses are located in Scottsdale and Phoenix. Both campuses offer excellent education facilities, including classrooms, lecture halls, and extensive library and computer services.
Patient care activity on the Scottsdale campus is centered around a five-story outpatient clinic. This modern facility contains an outpatient surgery center, full-service laboratory, pharmacy, endoscopy suite, patient education library, and a 188-seat auditorium for patient, staff and student education programs.
The Samuel C. Johnson Research Building and Mayo Clinic Collaborative Research Building on the Scottsdale campus house scientists, trainees and students using molecular biological, cell biological and genetic approaches to understand and treat cancer, immune disorders and other diseases.
The Phoenix campus houses Mayo Clinic Hospital, the first hospital entirely designed and built by Mayo Clinic, as well as outpatient facilities and administrative buildings.
All Mayo Graduate School courses are made available to registered students in Arizona through videoconferencing.
Videoconferencing of courses is also provided for students during rotations in Arizona laboratories or students performing dissertation research with an Arizona-based mentor. Videoconferencing is also available for thesis committee meetings and other interactions with Mayo and extramural colleagues.
There are multiple satellite-linked videoconference rooms and telephone-linked Tandberg units in the Samuel C. Johnson Research Building and Mayo Clinic Collaborative Research Building available for student needs.
