Additionally, Mayo Clinic has a strategic and robust relationship with Arizona State University (ASU). ASU has its headquarters located in Tempe, Arizona, and is now the largest university in the United States. It has been designated by US World and News as the most innovative university in the nation for eight years in a row. Mayo Clinic and ASU formalized their relationship in 2016 under the rubric of the Mayo Clinic and ASU Alliance for Healthcare. We have multiple areas of interaction, including research, education, innovation, and administration. Four focal areas of interest include Human Performance and Biomedical Research, Digital Connectivity, Workforce of the Future (Education), and Medical Technology. ASU built a research building in proximity to Mayo Clinic hospital, the Health Futures Center. In collaboration with ASU, we are building a biotechnology corridor called Discovery Oasis. Owning over 250 acres of land adjacent to our hospital secures strategically the future of Mayo Clinic. Individuals of Mayo Clinic can hold adjunct appointments at ASU, and in some circumstances can have students as part of the research team.

Mayo Clinic's campuses in Arizona are located in Phoenix and Scottsdale, in the beautiful Sonoran Desert.
