Physicians talking in the hallway at Mayo Clinic

About our campuses

Mayo Clinic is the largest multispecialty, private group practice in the world and has three integrated campus locations. Resources and expertise are shared throughout the organization.

Visiting medical students may complete a clerkship at any Mayo Clinic campus.

Rochester, Minnesota

Jacksonville, Florida

Phoenix/Scottsdale, Arizona


Mayo Clinic does not provide housing. However, a variety of suitable housing is available at all Mayo campuses. The cost depends on the type of housing and the amenities.

Housing and transportation information will be mailed upon confirmation of the clerkship. Students are responsible for making their own housing and transportation arrangements.

Scholarship opportunities are available to help defray costs.

Physician meeting with a young patient


In Rochester, Minnesota, housing is close to the Mayo Clinic campus, so it's not necessary to have a car during the clerkship. In Phoenix/Scottsdale, Arizona, and Jacksonville, Florida, housing is located farther from campus, making a car a necessity.


As a visiting medical student, you may obtain affordable meals at the employee cafeterias on Mayo's campuses.

Dress code

Generally, white coats are worn on the Mayo Clinic campus in Jacksonville, though they are usually not worn on the campuses in Phoenix/Scottsdale or Rochester. Men generally wear suits and ties or sport coats and ties. Women wear professional business attire. When appropriate, Mayo provides visiting medical students with scrubs.

Your confirmation letter will provide additional information about clothing.
