How is ASU’s College of Health Solutions connected to the Mayo Clinic?
In addition to joint degree programs, student internships, joint faculty appointments and research initiatives three of the College of Health Solutions’ units are co-located at Mayo Clinic’s Scottsdale campus:
- Department of Biomedical Informatics – The Department of Biomedical Informatics (BMI) upholds a strong partnership among academic researchers, clinical practitioners, and regional health care providers in the advancement of research and education in the science and practice of biomedical informatics. Bioinformatics focuses on the development and application of computational tools for the analysis of biomedical data (such as genomic and proteomic information) as well as the study of biological systems.
- International School of Biomedical Diagnostics – The ASU International School of Biomedical Diagnostics (ISBD) is the result of a unique and innovative initiative in the exciting and fast-growing field of diagnostics. ISBD at Arizona State University, along with our academic partner Dublin City University and other industry partners, is creating a critical incubator and producer of biomedical knowledge and innovation, committed to stimulating economic growth and improving the quality and longevity of life globally.
- Center for Metabolic and Vascular Biology – Through collaborative efforts, the Center for Metabolic Biology is striving to not only discover the mechanisms involved in the development of diabetes and cardiovascular disease, but to extend that knowledge to the bedside and the community in order to improve the lives of countless people.

What role does ASU play in the Mayo Clinic School of Medicine?
In collaboration with the Mayo Clinic School of Medicine, ASU is engaging in a number of ways including shared faculty, student services, and joint programs. One established program is a joint certificate program in the Science of Health Care Delivery, offered by ASU's College of Health Solutions. All Mayo Clinic School of Medicine students take a novel curriculum that focuses on critical skills required for the next generation of health leaders. EdPlus at ASU has also helped reimagine the delivery of the medical school curriculum through blended formats.
What does blended format mean?
Mayo Clinic School of Medicine and ASU have joined together to develop, implement, train and evaluate the blended learning curriculum, which will include online, classroom and experiential components. It is the overall intent of this partnership that the activities will transition Mayo’s didactic lecture model into a blended learning environment that will provide more focused face-to-face student and faculty interaction and a higher quality of standardized medical school curriculum that can be offered at multiple Mayo campuses.
What is the Science of Health Care delivery program?
ASU and Mayo has developed an online curriculum for a co-branded certificate in the Science of Health Care Delivery (SHCD) program. The SHCD Certificate is a separate track outside of ASU’s Science of Health Care Delivery MS degree program and the SHCD certificate curriculum developed will be infused into the Mayo Clinic School of Medicine core curriculum. All medical students who successfully complete the SHCD curriculum as part of their Mayo coursework will earn the Certificate and will have the opportunity to apply the 18 credits earned toward the ASU Master in SHCD, provided the students are accepted into the SHCD Master’s Program at ASU.
How do I become a Mayo Medical Scholar?
