Interview process

Applicants considered for acceptance are invited to visit Mayo Clinic for a personal interview with the program director and program's admissions committee. An interview can be arranged only when your application file is complete.

During the interview, you will meet other candidates and receive materials about Mayo Clinic and Rochester, Minnesota. Current students provide a tour of Mayo Clinic's nuclear medicine facilities.


Acceptance emails are sent as late as mid-March. An email response is typically requested within 5 days.

All official post-secondary transcripts may be sent directly to Mayo Clinic School of Health Sciences from your school and must include an embossed seal. If, however, they are sent to you first, forward them in their original, unopened envelope to the below address:
