In the Words of Dr. Will: The Primary Value of Mayo Clinic

Take a road trip with Dr. Will and learn how he expressed the primary value of Mayo Clinic.

A story of Mayo Clinic history.

In 1910, Dr. William J. Mayo was invited to deliver the commencement speech at Rush Medical College in Chicago. His words on that occasion form the basis of the primary value of Mayo Clinic: The needs of the patient come first.

Produced in the style of a PBS dramatization, this film imagines how Dr. Will developed his speech. With warmth, humor and insight, the film shows how Dr. Will collaborated with his associates and his irascible father, Dr. William Worrall Mayo.

The "vehicle" that tells this story is a special treat – a 1910 Packard touring car, the exact model of automobile that Dr. Will owned!
