Learn Here. Work Here.
Mayo Clinic School of Health Sciences is committed to educating the healthcare professionals of the future, both to meet the needs of Mayo Clinic and to spread the Mayo culture and philosophy of health care beyond the walls of the institution.
We are at the forefront of health care discovery and innovation, and we bring that culture to the classroom to create an unparalleled health sciences education that gives you access to the latest breakthrough technology in medicine and science.
Accessible and uniquely rewarding.
We truly evaluate applicants holistically. A strong grade point average never hurts, but we also look for compassion, innovation, a desire for excellence, and a teamwork orientation that we believe will contribute to the best possible patient care experience. Those characteristics are important to us for many reasons, including the fact that many students are offered employment from Mayo Clinic upon graduation. Connect with us to discuss how your passions, past experiences, and career desires might make you an ideal candidate for admission.
We’re fully integrated with Mayo Clinic patient care, creating a uniquely rewarding learning environment that extends throughout the medical center campus. You’ll benefit from early exposure to patient and clinical experiences, get more hands-on clinical work than you will find at other schools, and learn side-by-side with patient care teams that are a hallmark of the Mayo Clinic patient experience. Class sizes are small. Faculty will know your name. Classmates will become friends and trusted colleagues for life.
