From the program director

Mayo Clinic’s primary value, the needs of the patient come first, provides the foundational core for what it means to be a trainee at Mayo Clinic. If you want to train in an advanced, patient-focused critical care environment I encourage you to consider our program.

With more than 200 intensive care unit (ICU) beds across 9 specialties learners are immersed in diverse critical care environments. We have numerous highly trained preceptors in various specialty areas that are heavily engrained in the multidisciplinary practice. This allows for individualized mentorship and opportunities for collaboration on research and education.

Our program offers robust training in research, professional development, and teaching. We prepare you to be a well-rounded, skilled leader. We believe in the importance of fostering teachers and mentors of the future and investing time in developing trainees not only as clinicians, but also as people.

Mayo Clinic is at the forefront of innovation in research, education and patient care. It is humbling to see our institution and program strive to grow in forward-thinking ways to better the care for our patients. 

Please reach out with any questions regarding our program. We look forward to welcoming you to our Mayo Clinic family.
