Mayo Clinic doctors will be able to earn as much as $600,000 in the next two years as the Mayo Clinic Board of Governors looks to grow its population and attract more patients.
It also wants to attract new patients, a move that could allow them to become doctors within two years.
The board announced Monday it is working with the U.S. government to encourage new residents to become residents, but it is not saying how many or how soon.
The board also said the Mayo family practice could soon have a new face, as the clinic is looking to hire a new CEO and chief executive officer.
In a blog post, Dr. Robert K. Levesque, president and chief operating officer of the Mayo Family Practice, said the company will have a staff of about 2,000 by the end of 2019.
“I know that it is very difficult to attract and retain talented, dedicated and committed staff as the workforce grows,” he wrote.
“We need to be as proactive in our recruitment and retention efforts as we have been with our training.
We are working closely with our partners and are committed to increasing our workforce as we seek to attract a more diverse workforce.”
The Mayo Family practice already has more than 1,300 residents.
It is located in an old building on the north side of the main campus of the university.
