Americans spend 2.5 times more on health care than most developed countries, yet rank 37th in the world for health according to the World Health Organization (WHO). With skyrocketing health care costs, more people entering the system, a rise in chronic diseases and an aging population, we aim to change the paradigm to focus on promoting health and delivering health care in new ways.
One of those ways is how we educate tomorrow’s physicians. Medical students in some of the most respected schools in the country are learning under a new model that emphasizes cost-effective, patient-centered care. Mayo Clinic School of Medicine Arizona Campus and its partner, Arizona State University, by way of the College of Health Solutions, are included in the short list of innovators with its Science of Health Care Delivery program, aimed at producing young doctors who are better prepared to meet the demands of the nation’s changing healthcare system.
Ranked in the top four percent of nursing schools in the country by U.S. News & World Report, the College of Nursing & Health Innovation is distinguished as a model for excellence and inspiration in nursing and interprofessional practice, education and research to advance knowledge and innovative practice models. The college is dedicated to discovering new solutions to optimize the health and well-being of our diverse local, national and global communities.
