Prospective trainee joins a virtualal information session about the Mayo Clinic School of Biomedical Sciences Ph.D. Program.

Due to COVID-19, we are unable to accommodate any on-campus recruitment visits or meetings for the foreseeable future. While we certainly wish that we could meet you in-person, we are looking forward to connecting with you virtually instead!

With several types of virtual visit sessions available, our goal is to meet you where you are. Learn more about our visit opportunities below and sign up for one or several of the sessions based on your interests and future goals.

Registration is required. Once registered, you will receive a confirmation email with the link to the session.

Information Session

During this session, you'll get an overview of Mayo Clinic Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, the Ph.D. Program, financial aid information, and other helpful resources.

Anyone can attend these sessions, however, they are geared toward those who are in college, have a degree, are considering a career change, or are non-traditional students and interested in pursuing a Ph.D. degree in biomedical science.

Inside Look

In these, we dig into the Ph.D. Program and the various options for specializations. Two Ph.D. tracks will participate in each session and will be presented by program directors or faculty. These sessions will give participants an inside look at the track and provide program specific details. These sessions are for students who are already interested in a particular research track and would like more information.

We encourage participants to attend one of our Information Sessions to learn more about Mayo Clinic Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences before attending the Inside Look sessions.

Inside Look sessions are coming September 2022! Please check back for event details.

The application session will go over how to create an account, navigate the sections of the application system, and review the required supplemental items needed to complete the application. There will also be time to have questions answered in a one-on-one breakout room. This session will ensure applicants are aware of requirements needed to complete an application and move forward to the review stage.
