Mayo Clinic School of Medicine is ranked among the top 20 medical schools in the nation by U.S. News and World Report. The school was established in Rochester, Minnesota, in 1972. Beyond Rochester, Mayo Clinic opened a four-year medical school in Arizona earlier in 2017. And training opportunities are available at Mayo Clinic’s Florida campus, as well. This gives Mayo Clinic a nationwide presence in medical education. Mayo Clinic has been chosen by the Robert D. and Patricia E. Kern Institute for the Transformation of Medical Education to be part of a national initiative to modernize medical school for the 21st century.
