A Life-Changing Career


Responsibilities: As a member of the Center for Innovation, the Designer consults internally with the departments, divisions and committees across the clinic looking to innovate the delivery of Mayo's health care services.

These methods include: conducting observational research, interviews and workshops; undertaking internal and external research activities; generating conceptual frameworks and formulating insights related to the synthesis of the research data; communicating findings and concepts to project sponsors in a clear and compelling visual manner.

Most projects will be cross-functional in nature, involving split or shared responsibility and problem solving with disciplines and personnel from other areas.

The designer is an integral team member who works both independently and collaboratively through each phase of the project with other designers and project participants.


This position is a 0.50 FTE (working 40 hours per pay period or every two weeks).

Candidates must have a personal plan for professional development to maintain and update his/her skills, methods and tools. This plan should be aligned with the needs of the individual, the division and the strategic plan for Mayo Clinic.



Designer must have ability to independently manage a varied workload of projects with multiple priorities. Must be able to prioritize work that is assigned by the Section Head or requested by a customer through brief outline of the nature of the problem and the overall urgency. Must be capable of consulting, designing/conducting studies, and developing/implementing solutions (problems involve analytical and creative elements) for issues with significant financial and operational impact to the organization. The incumbent's recommendations may strongly impact clinical and administrative operations and may result in the institution incurring significant expense for the purchase of new equipment/software, hiring of additional personnel, or remodeling/designing facilities. As the work is complicated by an environment of multiple projects having high priority and resistance to change; strong time management skills and sound judgment are required.

About Mayo Clinic

Company Description

Mayo Clinic is the first and largest integrated, not-for-profit medical group practice in the world. Doctors from every medical specialty work together to care for patients, joined by common systems and a philosophy of "the needs of the patient come first." More than 3,800 physicians and scientists and 50,900 allied health staff work at Mayo Clinic, which has sites in Rochester, Minn., Jacksonville, Fla., and Scottsdale/Phoenix, Ariz.

Company History

Perhaps it was fate, perhaps happenstance or maybe even luck. Whatever you decide, this is certainly a story about being at the right place at the right time -- a moment in history when scientific discovery made possible the creation of modern medicine. It's also a story of an extraordinary family -- Dr. William Worrall Mayo, a frontier doctor, and his two sons, Dr. William J. Mayo and Dr. Charles H. Mayo, and the great institution they built, Mayo Clinic. It's the story of a deadly tornado and the partnership that evolved between the Mayo family and the Sisters of Saint Francis. It's a story about unusual dedication, willingness to face a hostile and harsh environment, a story of discovery, sharing, collaboration, selflessness and generosity. It's also a story of how people came together in a small town on the edge of America's Great Plains and built the first integrated medical practice and how that practice developed a model dedicated to providing the best care to every patient every day.

Mayo Clinic has a legacy of inspiring hope and contributing to health and wellbeing by providing the best care to every patient through integrated clinical practice, education, and research.
