Mayo Clinic's state-of-the-art electronic medical record system, which an outside review has deemed "second to none," and digital X-rays streamline the work process, enabling you to treat more patients in the same length of time. Our physician experts use an integrated team approach to best treat challenging conditions.
You are assigned a faculty adviser who can provide comprehensive educational advice and personal support. Your adviser also serves as a contact point, introducing you and your family to Phoenix and Scottsdale, Arizona, and the Mayo Clinic system.
Many prominent professors visit Mayo Clinic each year. They present their work during lectures and participate in hospital rounds. You are encouraged to take full advantage of these opportunities.
