Study and train in the Valley of the Sun

Since opening in 1987, Mayo Clinic's presence in Arizona has evolved into a multidisciplinary campus that has become a vital part of health care in Arizona.

The extensive campus includes the five-story Mayo Clinic Building, Collaborative Research Building, and Samuel C. Johnson Research Building in Scottsdale, along with Mayo Clinic Hospital and Mayo Clinic Specialty Building in northeast Phoenix.

And in September 2018, Mayo announced plans for a $748 million expansion project, called Arizona. Bold. Forward. that will nearly double the size of the Phoenix campus by 2024, adding 1.6 million square feet of medical, research, and education space.
