Mayo Clinic's campus in Jacksonville, Florida, was established in 1986 as a comprehensive medical facility in the southeastern U.S. where advanced programs in education and research support the highest quality patient care. The Florida campus facilities provide an exceptional learning environment for students and trainees. The modern educational facilities on campus include classrooms, lecture halls, and an extensive library and computer lab.
The 9,600-square-foot J. Wayne and Delores Barr Weaver Simulation Center allows medical teams and trainees from multiple disciplines to practice everything from basic skills to the most complicated scenarios with stunning realism.
