We have integrated a number of ways to practice coaching skills, including a "peer coaching process." Students will be assigned to a three-member peer coaching team to practice the skills learned in class.

In addition, all students will have the opportunity to participate in a mentored coach practice session with one of the instructors. More information about the peer coaching process will be explained during the on-site session.

Grading or evaluation

Mayo School of Health Sciences uses these evaluative tools:

  • Demonstration of skills
  • Self-assessment exercises
  • Faculty reviews

Mayo's system of evaluation provides students and faculty with a comprehensive look at individual performance. This allows faculty and administrative staff to direct students who are experiencing academic difficulty to the appropriate support resources.

Curriculum enhancements

Mayo School of Health Sciences is committed to developing and maintaining the best education programs. The curriculum and other aspects of this program are assessed constantly and changed as necessary to ensure the highest quality training.
