The Mayo Medical School is part of the Mayo Clinic. Its origin goes back to 1863, when Dr. William Worrall Mayo settled in Rochester. He was joined 20 years later by his two physician sons who set up a private integrated group practice in which they were joined by other respected physicians. This led to the formation of the renowned Mayo Clinic. The faculty of the Medical School is associated with the Clinic and hospitals. The school was founded in 1972.


4-year modern. The small class size facilitates a personalized course of instruction characterized by extensive clinical interaction and the integration of basic and clinical sciences throughout all segments of the curriculum. Patient contact begins early in the first year and increases commensurate with student progress. The integration of basic and clinical sciences occurs in a manner that strengthens basic science concepts, stresses the patient orientation appropriate for an undergraduate medical school, and utilizes a variety of active, problem-oriented, faculty-guided and selflearning techniques to aid student comprehension. Integration of the various components of the curriculum is promoted by organization of course material into broad functional units that span several curricular years. The curricular units are: the cell; the organ; the patient, physician, and society; the scientific foundations of medical practice; clinical experiences; and the research trimester. This type of curricular organization enables content integration of the basic and clinical sciences and between basic and clinical science.
