Mayo Clinic is a leading academic medical and research center with an annual research budget of $890 million, of which $565 million comes from external grants and contracts.

Most residencies and fellowships include dedicated research time designed to enhance the training experience.
One of the cool things about Mayo Clinic is how much emphasis we put on research and innovation, and how it's not just in the lab with basic science, but it's actually translated in our clinics, and we can take part of trials and register patients in trials.
