Mayo Medical School is a part of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, United States. It grants degrees in medicine, and is accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. The Mayo Clinic has a long history of medical education, and was a pioneer in post-graduate education for doctors. In 1972, Mayo Medical School opened its doors to 40 students for the first Mayo Medical School class chosen from 473 applicants. In its short history the school has risen to become one of the leading medical schools in the United States. Today, the class size is still very small and select by American medical school standards. In addition to allowing for high selection standards and significant individual student attention, the class size is small in part because every medical student at the school receives financial assistance from the Mayo Foundation, with several students each year receiving full tuition scholarships and the rest receiving at least half tuition scholarships. A large amount of need-based aid is also available. This is in line with the Mayo philosophy that the medical school should be able to train the best and brightest from all over the world, regardless of the ability of a student to pay for their medical education.
Our philosophy is that your qualifications, motivation and commitment to service – rather than finances – should guide your decision to apply to medical school. Financing medical education is the student’s responsibility, but thanks to generous benefactors and thoughtful planning Mayo’s financial aid program is able to substantially assist every student accepted.
2009-2010 Tuition: $30,660*
* Mayo Clinic provides generous scholarships to all students not receiving extramural full-tuition support. Scholarship awards help to offset a significant portion of tuition expense for students. These awards continue each year the student achieves satisfactory progress through the curriculum.
