Areas of research

Postdoctoral research fellow community

More than 600 postdoctoral research fellows train at Mayo Clinic each year. They are a critical component of Mayo's vibrant research community.

Mayo Clinic College of Medicine

Mayo Clinic is a private, not-for-profit biomedical institution that includes a tertiary referral medical center. Mayo Clinic offers medical and graduate training and postdoctoral scientist training. 

Mayo Clinic College of Medicine integrates the research and education functions of the institution. It serves much like a provost's office does at other academic medical centers. The five schools of Mayo Clinic College of Medicine meet the education mission of Mayo Clinic and are the basis of our vibrant academic community. 

As noted by Mayo Clinic President and CEO John H. Noseworthy, M.D., "Without research, there is no Mayo Clinic." This demonstrates Mayo's commitment to sustaining and growing research. Mayo Clinic believes in research-driven care, and there is a well-defined link integrating research and clinical practice.
