Mayo Clinic has a long-standing tradition of practicing both the art and science of medicine. Physicians, scientists, residents, students, nurses, and allied health staff members work as a team guided by our mission statement. Our staff clinicians and scientists are called consultants in recognition of their teaching and mentoring role on the team.
Mayo Clinic's favorable faculty ratio, large patient population, and state-of-the-art diagnostic, therapeutic, and research facilities combine to create a truly integrated educational experience. The "Mayo Clinic way" of graduate medical education ensures you have the finest teaching and the broadest patient care experience possible during a busy, hands-on fellowship.
In addition to caring for patients in their clinical practices, Mayo Clinic's faculty is committed to teaching and facilitating the growth of medical knowledge. Many faculty members have published and lectured extensively and are highly regarded in their fields.

Advisers and mentors
You are assigned a dedicated faculty adviser who can provide comprehensive educational advice and personal support. Trainees meet with their advisers periodically throughout the program to review their progress and career goals, and ensure that their educational needs are being met. Your adviser also serves as a contact point for introducing you and your family to the Phoenix metropolitan area and the Mayo Clinic system.
Many prominent professors visit Mayo Clinic each year. They present their work during lectures, participate in hospital rounds, and have informal discussions with trainees. You are encouraged to take full advantage of these educational opportunities.
