The Admissions Executive Committee reviews completed applications and selects qualified applicants for on-campus interviews in Rochester, Minn. If you are invited for an on-site interview, there are no phone interviews or regional interviews allowed. You must be able to attend an interview in Rochester.
- 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'll receive information to arrange either hotel accommodations or to stay with a medical student host.
The interview day at Mayo Medical School begins at 8:30 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. From 8 to 8:30 a.m., interviewees are welcome to observe a portion of the morning lectures while in session (with the exception of the anatomy laboratory).
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 one-hour walking 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.
