Gaining Admission to Mayo Clinic (from out of state)
Does anyone know the ways to get admitted to Mayo Clinic? It seems like it is very difficult (especially when out if state and thousands of miles away). I am trying to gain admission to address a systemic disorder and am told I should ideally have a internal medicine specialist as the quarterback who can bring in specialists and utilize the multi-specialty, integrated, collaborative team approach unique to Mayo Clinic. However when my doctor calls Mayo Clinic internal medicine – what if she fails to get me admitted? (This despite at least 4 of my local doctors who have examined me stating that I meet the criteria of “acute medical necessity”.) I’m told further that if IM denies my admission, I would have to wait 1 whole year to re-apply. This seems ludicrous as I will be either homeless and/or dead in a year. Can anyone shed light on this? Hopefully I will obtain admission but need to know how to get around the 1-year wait period if I should get denied.
