Learn from the best

Mayo Clinic is the top ranked center for patient care clinical experiences in the country. As a student, you have the opportunity to learn with these world-class experts. Your faculty will push you to explore and maximize your education.

Dedicated faculty across all specialties

Faculty at Mayo Clinic Alix School of Medicine consists of researchers, educators, scientists and professionals — unique individuals with areas of expertise — who are all members of the Mayo Clinic family. This is significant because your teachers are not only your teachers, they're performing surgeries, seeing patients, conducting research and working at Mayo Clinic. This allows them to provide real-life insight and experience. 

Our 3.4:1 full-time faculty-to-student ratio allows for highly individualized instruction and supervision. Beyond full-time faculty, students have unparalleled access to more than 3,700 other Mayo Clinic clinicians and researchers across all three campuses.

Mayo medical students receive instruction directly from physician faculty who spend significant time in the clinic and hospital settings. From day one, students apply knowledge gained from didactic learning to patient care in the clinical setting alongside the faculty who deliver the curricula content.

Specialty career adviser

You'll have endless opportunities to find and maintain mentorship relationships with your faculty. But, one specific way we help facilitate this is with a specialty career adviser.

Every first-year student is carefully paired with a specialty career adviser who provides overall career guidance longitudinally throughout the four-year curriculum. Your specialty career adviser will act as a mentor and be available to help guide you as you pursue your M.D. degree.
