Mayo Clinic CARES

Mayo Clinic CARES

The Mayo Clinic CARES program in Arizona is intended to introduce, prepare, and inspire high school students of various backgrounds and potentials for a career in the health care industry in a summer program with continuing, longitudinal mentorship.

The 2019 program takes place over five weeks on both Mayo Clinic Arizona campuses for three days per week, and includes shadowing and presentations by over 70 faculty, clinicians, researchers, educators, and allied health care careers to expose students to a wide variety of programs.

Students are included in longitudinal mentoring beyond the program by selected Mayo Clinic mentors. The program is based in learning their strengths and promoting wellness, to ultimately become future leaders in the healthcare workforce. For more information, email officefordiversity@mayo.edu.
