Mayo Medical School's Arizona branch receives licensure

Rochester, Minn.-based Mayo Medical School announced Thursday its branch campus in Scottsdale, Ariz., has received state licensure.

Mayo's four-year branch campus in Arizona is slated to open in 2017, and the school plans to open a third- and fourth-year campus in Florida next year.

"Mayo Medical School will truly be a national medical school," Michele Halyard, MD, vice dean and incoming interim dean of the school, said in a statement. "We are training our students to be excellent physicians and scientists and we are equipping them with the leadership and tools to transform America's ailing healthcare system."

Graduates of the Arizona campus will receive a Science of Health Care Delivery certificate with their medical degree. The four-year Science of Health Care Delivery curriculum was created in conjunction with Arizona State University and includes topics such as engineering, healthcare policy and biomedical informatics.
