Mayo Clinic will join forces with Arizona State University to develop a new $266 million medical-school branch in Scottsdale that could begin teaching medical students by 2014. The Rochester, Minn.-based medical school plans to add the facility, to be called the Mayo Medical School-Arizona campus… "It seems like the right time to do this," Mayo Clinic CEO John Noseworthy said Tuesday. "This is a very strong statement that Mayo Clinic intends to be here and is signaling that we wish to grow our presence in Arizona as the major academic medical center in the Valley."
