Alliance History

Mayo Clinic in Arizona and Arizona State University first formed a partnership in 2002. Among the first initiatives was the development of the ASU College of Nursing and Health Innovation -Mayo Clinic Campus program, allowing cohorts of 20-30 senior nursing students to complete their clinical training on the Mayo campus instructed by Mayo Clinic nursing faculty. Of this group of highly ranked graduates, more than 55% are hired at Mayo Clinic. From that initial collaborative effort, additional programs have materialized in the form of a joint Seed Grant Program, a host of dual degree opportunities, cutting-edge research collaborations and other expansive, shared projects.  In the summer of 2010, the relationship became Mayo Clinic enterprise-wide and in 2016, the Mayo Clinic and ASU Alliance for Health Care was formed.
