Mayo Clinic is the first and largest integrated not-for-profit group practice in the world. Doctors from every medical specialty work together to care for patients, joined by common systems and a philosophy that "the needs of the patient come first." More than 3,400 physicians, scientists, and researchers and 48,000 allied health staff work at Mayo Clinic, which has sites in Rochester, Minn., Jacksonville, Fla., and Scottsdale/Phoenix, Ariz. Mayo Clinic also serves 70 communities in the upper Midwest through Mayo Health System. Collectively, these locations treat more than half a million people each year.
Cooperation with FNUSA-ICRC
The collaboration between St. Anne’s University Hospital in Brno (FNUSA) and Mayo Clinic started in 2001, when one of St. Anne’s cardiologists, Tomas Kara, M.D., Ph.D., became employed by Mayo Clinic’s Cardiovascular Disease Clinic through winning the NASPE prize. He worked under the supervision of Virend Somers, MD, Ph.D., the chief cardiologist and director of the Cardiovascular Physiology Laboratory of Mayo Clinic, and he still works under his guidance. Mayo Clinic has significantly contributed to the creation and development of the concept of the ICRC. Experts from Mayo Clinic are involved in defining the objectives of the research programs and their subsequent management.
