Serving through community care

Mayo Clinic Health System is a family of clinics, hospitals, and other healthcare facilities serving more than 60 communities in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Iowa.

Founded in 1992, Mayo Clinic Health System links the expertise of Mayo Clinic with healthcare providers in local communities to offer patients a full spectrum of healthcare options, with more than 100 medical services and specialties available throughout the system. Patients receive quality healthcare at Mayo Clinic Health System sites and, when needed, can receive specialty care at Mayo Clinic's campuses in Rochester, Minnesota, or Jacksonville, Florida.

By working together, sharing resources and knowledge, and implementing new programs, services, and technology, Mayo Clinic Health System meets the highest standards for medical care and health improvement. Affiliations with regional medical clinics in Mayo Clinic Health System offer students and trainees various additional clinical training and patient care opportunities, particularly in rural medicine, to coincide with their interests.

Access to Mayo Clinic Health System allows students and trainees to draw from the knowledge and expertise of Mayo Clinic while collaborating with and learning from healthcare providers in diverse, individualized settings.

Learning at Mayo Clinic Health System

While Rochester, Minnesota, is home to the majority of Mayo Clinic’s medical and scientific educational programs, residency-level training opportunities also exist at Mayo Clinic Health System sites. The experience gained through these residencies and clinic rotation programs helps prepare physicians, advanced practice providers, pharmacists, and other professionals to bring Mayo Clinic-quality care to the local communities where they choose to establish their medical careers.

Additionally, Mayo Clinic Health System offers clinical rotations for many health sciences programs, giving students an opportunity to understand and appreciate the unique features of the community practice.
