Amplify expertise

Members of the Mayo Clinic Care Network can build or amplify clinical, educational or research expertise through a unique collaboration with Mayo Clinic.

At the core of the network is clinical collaboration. Mayo Clinic specialists work together with member physicians, consulting and sharing resources to complement existing expertise.

Patients benefit when their trusted local health care providers engage Mayo Clinic specialists on their behalf to confirm, consult or access the latest research on their conditions.

By combining local provider understanding of patients' unique medical needs with Mayo Clinic's expertise, patients receive exactly the care they need, close to home, at no additional cost.
