Mayo Clinic gets its largest gift ever: $200 million to train doctors of the future


November 14, 2018

Mayo Clinic will receive $200 million from the founder of a corporate turnaround firm to help future students pay for medical school and study fields such as genetics and artificial intelligence, which are becoming central to modern medicine.

The endowment gift by Jay Alix, announced Tuesday morning, is the largest in Mayo's history. The Rochester-based health care provider is renaming its medical school as the Mayo Clinic Alix School of Medicine in recognition of the gesture. "This is a powerful, transformational, multigenerational gift," said Dr. Fred Meyer, dean of the medical school. "We're honored and excited all at the same time."
