ASU, Mayo Clinic Team Up for New Medical School


by Associated Press

PHOENIX —The Mayo Clinic and Arizona State University are teaming up to offer a medical certificate program.
Students attending the Mayo Clinic School of Medicine, which will open next summer, will simultaneously complete an ASU and Mayo Clinic certificate program in the science of health-care delivery as part of the Mayo Clinic and ASU Alliance for Health Care.

Mayo Clinic’s Arizona CEO Dr. Wyatt Decker says Mayo partnered with ASU to develop the certificate curriculum to train doctors who are equipped to practice 21st century medicine.

“How do we deliver care to everybody that is affordable and high quality? That’s a tall order,” Decker said. “We think Arizona is increasingly going to be recognized nationally as a place where thought leaders are in this area of health-care delivery.”

The Mayo Clinic School of Medicine will oversee medical school curriculum and confer MD degrees to graduating students.
ASU has purchased a land parcel near Mayo Clinic’s hospital in northeast Phoenix, where it plans to build the Health Solutions Innovation Center. ASU President Michael Crow said at least two schools — ASU’s schools of biomedical informatics and science of health-care delivery — will relocate to the new building when it is completed.
The Mayo Clinic and ASU have collaborated on projects since 2003, including dual-degree programs, a nursing education program, collaborative joint research projects, and more than 80 joint faculty appointments and numerous joint intellectual property disclosures.
