The Mayo Clinic and Arizona State University have partnered to create cutting-edge learning enhancements for healthcare innovators to meet the needs of a shifting healthcare landscape.

This project is made possible by The Mayo Clinic, a leading national medical practice and research group, and Arizona State University, a nationally ranked comprehensive research institution.

EdPlus at ASU sought to create a solid foundation for innovation in both medical education and medical practice. Together, the Mayo Clinic and ASU are taking on current challenges in medical education.

Medical education faces many challenges

70% of global deaths in 2015 were due to non-communicable diseases

Over the past 100 years, we have witnessed massive shifts in healthcare, yet the process of educating physicians has largely remained the same. Without forward-thinking medical education and a significant number of practitioners prepared to meet patient needs, the future of healthcare is at risk.

“We are breaking down barriers. With Mayo and ASU, and with involved citizens, we can make healthcare better and grow the Arizona economy too.” - Wyatt W. Decker, M.D., Vice President, Mayo Clinic. CEO, Mayo Clinic Arizona.

Featured collaboration

EdPlus at ASU and the Mayo Clinic have created an introductory course on the innovative curriculum in the science of health care delivery taught at Mayo Clinic School of Medicine. This course introduces important concepts in high value care, leadership, population-centered care, health policy, team-based care, and person-centered care. The Science of Health Care Delivery online course is a reflection of the shared mission of Mayo Clinic and Arizona State University to advance innovation in the health care landscape.​
