Career Awareness Program
High School Career Awareness/Educational Visit

Mayo Clinic has structured traditional high school tour requests into a more formal, career awareness program known as the High School Career Awareness/Educational Visit. The purpose of this program is to provide career awareness experience that matches student interests. The program provides participants the opportunity to:

  • ask questions of employees
  • observe equipment/tools used in the profession
  • observe the work environment of the profession

There is a formal Educator Guidebook for use by educators looking to request a visit. All requests must go through the formal application/assessment process. Please e-mail careerawareness@mayo.edu to request a guidebook if needed.
