Mayo Clinic college and school names change

The names of Mayo Clinic College of Medicine and its five schools have changed to more clearly reflect each area’s focus and function. It’s one of the first steps new Juanita Kious Waugh Executive Dean for Education Fredric Meyer, M.D. (NS ’87), took to raise understanding of the educational opportunities at Mayo Clinic.

“The name changes are a start to push forth boldly that we are Mayo Clinic College of Medicine and Science. We do great medical education, and we felt it was important to also acknowledge the outstanding scientific research and health sciences training that occur within our schools,” says Dr. Meyer. “Our college and schools intertwine with both practice and research, like Mayo’s three shields.”
