Mayo Clinic Alix School of Medicine is a national medical school with three unique and vibrant campuses in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota. Students are encouraged to explore opportunities at all campus locations and beyond!

Even though students enroll at one campus, they have various opportunities throughout the program to learn at all three campuses. The curriculum allows significant opportunity for students to obtain off-campus experiences in various fields of interest. Each campus offers a different personality as well as unique amenities and experiences. Students are able to acquire educational experiences across a broad spectrum of patient and health populations in a variety of practice settings.

By year, here are a few examples of how students have the opportunity to utilize all three campuses:

  • First- and second-year students have the opportunity to take selectives on- or off-campus, locally, regionally, nationally or internationally.
  • Third-year students have the opportunity to complete core clerkship rotations at any of the three campuses.
  • Fourth-year students can complete much of the year at any of the three campuses with the exception of the three-week intersession in March (required at the Minnesota or Arizona campus).

In the past academic year, 37 third-year students completed 80 clerkship rotations in Arizona and Florida, and 12 fourth-year students completed 76 clerkship weeks in Arizona and Florida.
