Department and Faculty
Mayo Clinic's Department of Family Medicine is committed to providing the highest quality care to individual patients and families. Nearly 60 staff physicians and their teams provide quality and compassionate care for 130,000 patient visits each year.
Family medicine at Mayo Clinic includes three family medicine clinics in Rochester, Minn., and a community clinic in Kasson, Minn. All residents maintain their continuity practice at Kasson.
In addition to caring for patients in their clinical practices, Mayo Clinic's faculty members are committed to teaching and facilitating the growth of medical knowledge. Many of our faculty have published and lectured extensively and are well regarded in their field. You will have direct access to these individuals throughout your training program.
Our graduate education mentor system is designed to provide you with comprehensive educational advice and personal support. You will be assigned a faculty mentor and senior resident who will serve as contact people, introducing you and your family to Rochester and the Mayo Clinic system.
The Mayo Clinic campus in Rochester includes two hospitals with more than 1,800 beds, a Level 1 Trauma Center, a comprehensive outpatient medical complex, a variety of research facilities, and several full-service laboratories and on-site pharmacies. Nearly 1,600 staff physicians represent virtually all clinical specialties.
Mayo Family Clinic Kasson, which is the home of the residency program, is a realistic model of rural practice and houses the only physicians in the town of Kasson and in Dodge County, Minn. The 16,000-square-foot facility has 43 fully equipped examination rooms and a complete office laboratory. Chest, extremity and skull X-rays can be taken on-site by a full-time X-ray technician. There are four procedure rooms equipped for minor surgery and cast application.
Both Mayo Clinic in Rochester and the Mayo Family Clinic Kasson utilize leading-edge technology and equipment. You will learn to properly use this technology for the benefit of your patients. Your training will emphasize compassionate patient care using the most cost-effective means.
