Mayo Clinic to add medical school in Scottsdale, Ariz.

Posted on September 29th, 2011 by

For the first time, the Mayo Clinic plans to open a branch of its medical school outside Minnesota, at its medical facility in Scottsdale, Ariz. The move, announced Tuesday, will effectively double the size of Mayo's medical school, which has historically enrolled only about 50 students a year in Rochester, Minn… The new program is an attempt "to redesign medical education in ways that align with the future of health care delivery," said Dr. Wyatt Decker, CEO of the Mayo Clinic in Arizona.
