A fantastic, well organized program. Where else can what hear the top Drs. at the Mayo clinic and be right at the cutting edge of so many new developments in medicine. A busy program in order to include all of these well regarded speakers/doctors. Pat Priest 50 trips

Overall, an excellent and informative program. One presenter was all caught up in himself and presented a lecture that would have been appropriate for advanced medical students or professional medical personnel. All others were good.

An intense, informative, and entertaining overview of developments in the field of medicine presented by the Mayo Clinic doctors, engineers, researchers, and practitioners who are participating in an leading the developments. Don't let the number of lectures (22) turn you away -- each of them provides great insight into what has happened in the past (especially the last 20 years) and what the future holds.

I really enjoyed this course, and want to thank Steve and Julie for getting me places I could not manage on my own. The speakers were an interesting mix and invited us to participate in some of the exercises. I came home with a heavy suitcase due to all the handouts and all the free Mayo publications. I would recommend this to people who are willing to look at health from a different perspective.

This program will be counted as one of my favorites. The content was excellent, food good, accommodations comfortable. I highly recommend it if you want to learn of new innovations in our medical choices, learn history of the Mayo Clinic,and meet special Hosts!
