The Nurse-Midwifery Clinical Rotations Program utilizes preceptors from Mayo Clinic's obstetrics and gynecology team. This predominantly involves the midwifery staff, but may include physicians and nurse practitioners as deemed appropriate for student learning.
Preceptors are chosen for their commitment to teaching, as well as clinical practice and research. You have access to these individuals throughout your training, giving you the opportunity to learn directly from some of today's best practitioners in your field.
The faculty, with assistance from community resources, directs and guides your clinical learning in an integrated system of practice and education. The program coordinators are clinically experienced nurses with master's degrees.
Supervision and accessibility to faculty from the affiliated nurse-midwifery program at your school will be maintained throughout your clinical experiences at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota.
Visiting professors and lecturers
A hallmark of higher education excellence is the breadth and depth of information and experience provided to students by faculty and visiting experts. Many prominent professors visit Mayo Clinic each year to lecture on their areas of medical and scientific expertise.
As a student of Mayo School of Health Sciences, you are encouraged to learn from these valuable resources by attending all conferences, lectures and seminars prepared for students, residents, fellows and consulting staff.
