Mayo Clinic School of Medicine Receives $200 Million Gift

It is the largest-ever endowment gift to the Mayo Clinic. The school will now be known as the Mayo Clinic Alix School of Medicine.

The Mayo Clinic announced a gift of $200 million from Jay Alix, a philanthropist from Birmingham, Mich. and founder of the firm AlixPartners. The endowment gift, the largest ever to the Mayo Clinic, is designated to the Mayo Clinic School of Medicine and will expand scholarship opportunities, further innovation in the school's curriculum, and establish a professorship. The school will now be known as the Mayo Clinic Alix School of Medicine.

"My primary philanthropic interests are medicine and education. Mayo Clinic Alix School of Medicine will offer an ideal opportunity to advance both fields," said Alix. "Genetics, artificial intelligence, virtual and augmented reality, and other technologies are transforming medical research, education, and practice. This gift will further enable Mayo's medical school to recruit the best medical students and to create a curriculum that trains them to harness evolving radical advances in medical science and technology to the greatest benefit of patients."

Alix is a member of Mayo Clinic's Board of Trustees and co-chair of Mayo's Global Advisory Council.

"Mayo Clinic is honored to be the recipient of this transformative endowment," said Dr. John Noseworthy, M.D., president and CEO of Mayo Clinic. "It enables faculty and students to explore new academic fields to better patient care, conduct research, apply new technologies, and develop innovative teaching methods far into the future."
