Mayo Clinic Campuses
Mayo Medical School is an integral part of Mayo Clinic, the country's largest private group practice based at three campuses in Phoenix/Scottsdale, Ariz.; Jacksonville, Fla.; and Rochester, Minn. At all Mayo Clinic campuses, the mission is to provide the best care to every patient every day through integrated clinical practice, education and research.
The first, second and fourth years of the curriculum allow significant opportunity for students to obtain off-campus experiences in various fields of interest. These opportunities are not restricted to Mayo Clinic sites and, as such, can occur at other national and international medical centers.
For example, students can arrange for rotations in plastic surgery, neurosurgery, physical medicine and rehabilitation, emergency medicine, ophthalmology, and many other departments at Mayo Clinic in Arizona, Florida or Minnesota. They can explore the legal aspects of medicine or investigate perceptions of allied health professions to develop interprofessional skills.
Students can also obtain experience in diverse ethnic and socioeconomic settings such as a community medical home, county jail, private medical practice, and national and international underserved areas.
Third-year students have the opportunity to complete core clerkship rotations at the Mayo Clinic campuses in Arizona, Florida or Minnesota. In the past academic year, 37 third-year students chose to complete 80 clerkship rotations in Arizona and Florida.
Fourth-year students can complete the entire year in Arizona or Florida with the exception of the three-week intersession in March. In the 2012-2013 academic year, 12 fourth-year students completed 76 clerkship weeks in Arizona and Florida.
