Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville performs thousands of surgeries each year, ranging from straightforward and routine to emergent and highly complex.

Surgical procedures include cardiac, orthopedic, trauma/critical care and urologic, in addition to organ transplants. The vast number and type of surgeries, in combination with our highly educated faculty, make Mayo an ideal educational setting for you to receive your surgical technology training.

Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville was established in 1986 as a comprehensive medical facility in the southeastern United States. At Mayo, advanced programs in education and research support the highest-quality patient care.

The new Mayo Clinic hospital is a modern 214-bed facility with sophisticated, state-of-the-art operating rooms, transplant, and advanced cardiac and neurosurgery facilities.

For the majority of the rotation, your learning schedule will include eight-hour days, five days per week.

Class Size
The Mayo School of Health Sciences can admit approximately two students at a time for surgical technology clinical rotations. Rotations are typically four weeks in length but, if space is available, can extend to twelve weeks to meet the home institution's requirements.
