Mayo Clinic values

At Mayo Clinic, our values— manifest in the phrase RICH TIES — drive our educational mission. These values are an expression of the vision and intent of our founders, the original Mayo physicians and the Sisters of Saint Francis. We endeavor to uphold these values in all of our work, including in our educational outreach. These values include:

  • Respect
  • Integrity
  • Compassion
  • Healing
  • Teamwork
  • Innovation
  • Excellence
  • Stewardship

Teaching philosophy

Mayo Clinic’s focus on the three shields — patient care, education, and research — informs our teaching philosophy. This type of interconnectedness means our faculty are not only teachers, but they are also practicing physicians, active researchers, and/or administrative leaders. Because of this, you are learning from teachers who are specialized in their field while also having the perspective to see the “big picture” in healthcare.

Expert faculty and consultants

Our faculty and consultants are recognized as leaders in healthcare, ready and willing to share their knowledge and experience. Meet a few of our top consultants as well as the faculty members teaching our top courses.
