Healing the once impossible with every medical innovation and breakthrough.

The things that change people, medicine, the very definition of possible — those things don't happen by accident or luck, but steady determination. Work, and a lot of it. It's being dogged and daring and precise and humble. It's one lab result, one inkling, one achievement, tool, question, chart, late-late night (again), one elevator pep talk, one hand on the shoulder of a patient at a time. It's hope with a vengeance, science with a cause. It's the powerful but silent promise we share; that all we'll ever do is give our all.

The things that change the very definition of possible — they don't happen by accident or luck. They happen here. They're happening right now. And these are the physicians and teams making sure tomorrow will never be the same.

"The glory of medicine is that it is constantly moving forward." Dr. William Mayo
We make the impossible possible.

For the physicians and teams who find themselves at Mayo Clinic, this isn't just a profession, it's a calling — an undeterred purpose, with unignorable stakes. It's this personal and collective drive that leads to solving the unsolvable faster, to adapting smarter, to combining expertise sooner, and sharing knowledge freely. Because we know all that work, and re-working, all the inventing and wondering, every single off-the-cuff or on-the-fly idea could have the life-changing potential to save a patient, develop a cure, become the discovery that reshapes everything.

"The scientist is not content to stop at the obvious." Dr. Charles Mayo
Relentless resides here.

Mayo Clinic is synonymous with medical innovations, advancements, future-forward achievements, and a determination to change the world, forever. No small task, but a commitment each one of us takes to heart day in, day out. This is the place where the people who have proven to be the best in their expertise come to work toward becoming even better. Here, traditional silos and barriers don't exist, collaboration inspires and the sky-high standards we create are set — and reset daily.

We've pioneered a model of health care as it should be — putting patients first and at the center of everything we do. People with the most serious, complex, and difficult medical challenges come to us to cure uncertainty. So, there are real people behind every trial and discovery.

Our 3D printing models, for instance, allow physicians to create life-size organ models to map out even the most intricate surgeries — making them more precise, more efficient, and less invasive. Advanced imaging makes it possible for care teams to literally see possible solutions that otherwise may have gone undetected. Even artificial intelligence, once unimaginable outside of fantasy, is real and tangible here and our teams are using it to create personalized gene road maps to customize treatments to help fight disease. Here, real people facing some of life's biggest challenges get access to this unrivaled collaboration, technology, expertise and, most importantly, a path forward when it's needed most.
