The Administrative Fellowship Program's first priority is the long-term leadership needs of Mayo Clinic; our second priority is immediate needs and opportunities. With these priorities in mind, we assign you to rotations according to your capabilities, interests and need for development.

If you have a strong interest in a given area, we will make every effort to provide an experience in that area, though we ask you to be flexible and responsive to our organizational needs and opportunities.

During your rotation planning discussions, you'll be encouraged to envision the full range of experience you hope to gain so that, at the end of your fellowship, you'll be a strong candidate for the positions you wish to pursue.

You are assigned to a base location, where most of your rotation assignments take place. However, we will try to give you the opportunity to experience another Mayo Clinic location during your fellowship. Your "traveling" rotation may take you to Jacksonville, Florida; Phoenix/Scottsdale, Arizona; Rochester, Minnesota; or a Mayo Clinic Health System practice.
