The Mayo Clinic is a nonprofit organization with a mission of contributing to health and well being through compassionate care. They treat patients of all categories, from children to elderly with dementia.
The clinic has developed for the past 150 years from pioneer doctor Dr. William Worrall Mayo and his sons William James Mayo and Charles Horace Mayo. Their clinic grew into the world’s first private integrated group practice, and the philosophy of combining the knowledge and skills of many doctors has influenced medical facilities around the world.
Today, the Mayo Clinic has major facilities in Minnesota, Arizona, and Florida along with a number of smaller locations throughout the USA. More than 60,000 doctors, nurses, and other staff serve over one million people every year, and the patients come from all 50 states and nearly 150 countries.
Mayo Clinic research and specialties for patient care
Besides patient care, the Mayo clinic also performs research and clinical trials that test the safety and effects of new drugs and therapies. The research is driven by needs of patients, and stems out of doctors’ seeing opportunities for improving patient care.
The Mayo Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center at Mayo Clinic in Florida and Mayo Clinic in Minnesota might be of special interest to many. They specialize in researching memory disorders and study possible causes, prevention of, testing for, and treatment options for Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia. At times, there can be opportunities to participate in clinical trials.
