Does Mayo Medical School utilize a problem-oriented learning model?
Major courses in the first two curricular years are problem-based, and major segments of many other courses use the problem-based model. Small-group format is the rule, with faculty facilitators helping to direct a student's independent learning.

What kind of grading system is used at MMS?
The two years are graded pass or fail. Clerkships during years three and four are graded: Pass, Marginal Pass and Fail, or Honors, High Pass, Pass, Marginal Pass and Fail.

Do students at Mayo get to see "regular medicine," or is it all referral practice?
Yes, in addition to being a national and international resource for medical care, the majority of residents of Rochester and Olmsted County and much of the surrounding region see a Mayo Clinic physician as their primary care provider. Rochester and surrounding areas have a diverse population. In the public school district, 17 percent of students are from underrepresented minority groups.

The Department of Family Medicine plays an active role in the education of students. Clinical experiences in the Rochester or Kasson Family Medicine Clinics provide exposure to common medical problems.

Students also spend one week under the guidance of a family medicine preceptor in a rural practice near Rochester. Internal medicine, pediatric and obstetric basic clerkships are strongly weighted toward community care as well.

How do students utilize the Mayo campuses in Arizona and Florida?
Students are encouraged to take electives in another Mayo practice during their fourth year. The required fourth-year subinternship may be taken at any of the three sites, and Mayo Clinic generously supports students who elect to take this opportunity. Tremendous opportunities also are available for the research trimester or the Surgery III and Medicine III rotations in both Florida and Arizona.

How many Mayo medical students stay at Mayo Clinic for their residencies?
Approximately 40 percent of our graduates are chosen for a Mayo Graduate School of Medicine program. More than 20 percent of the graduates of Mayo Medical School are on staff at a Mayo institution. Three of the last four presidents of the Mayo Clinic staff are graduates of Mayo Medical School.

What opportunities for employment are there for significant others?
There are two major employers in Rochester providing a wide range of career opportunities (Mayo Clinic and IBM). Many smaller technology and service businesses also flourish in the community.
