Graduate students may choose to make Jacksonville home, completing lab rotations and core curriculum courses (via videoconference) without leaving Florida.
Mayo Clinic in Florida was established in 1986 as a comprehensive medical facility in the southeastern United States, where advanced programs in education and research support the highest-quality patient care.
Campus activity is centered around the interconnected Davis, Mayo and Cannaday buildings. The advanced Birdsall Medical Research Building allows researchers to investigate neurological diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. The Griffin Cancer Research Building was completed in 2001 to support Mayo's many cancer studies. Construction is well under way on the Mayo Clinic hospital scheduled to open the first quarter of 2008. The campus includes modern education facilities, including classrooms, lecture halls, an extensive library and computer lab.
Mayo Clinic Hospital on the Jacksonville campus provides essential clinical care experiences for students and trainees. The 214-bed facility has operating rooms, transplant and epilepsy units, and advanced cardiac and neurosurgery facilities.
