Dean's Welcome

As dean of Mayo School of Graduate Medical Education (MSGME), I take great pride in working to ensure the education of skilled, compassionate medical and research professionals who deliver safe high-quality patient care. This work is accomplished by a dedicated team of associate deans, program directors, faculty, program coordinators, office staff and administrators who work together to continuously improve and expand our programs. Our goals are clear:

  • To ensure the needs of every patient are best served
  • To help each resident and fellow achieve her or his goal to become a highly competent well-trained clinician and/or scientist
  • To provide a comprehensive graduate medical education infrastructure to promote excellence and innovation

These goals are best achieved in a supportive environment in which learners are respected as valued members of the health care team.

Several distinct features set Mayo Clinic apart from other academic medical centers:

  • The focus on the needs of the patient in all aspects of education, research and patient care
  • The importance placed on educating a new generation of physician
  • The friendly, collegial team atmosphere between faculty, trainees and other health professionals
  • The opportunity to learn and practice medicine with the best in the world
  • The opportunity to conduct research in an environment where it can be directly translated to patient care
  • The excitement of working with others who are striving to do their best today, and to do even better tomorrow

As the school's dean, I build on the rich educational legacy begun by the Mayo brothers more than 100 years ago. Welcome … and thank you for advancing your training and career through graduate medical education at Mayo Clinic.

Best regards,
