The authoritative biography of Dr. William Worrall Mayo and his physician sons.
Our Father Taught Us
A Journey Toward Teamwork
It all began with a country doctor and his sons — 2 boys raised to be doctors "the way farm boys are taught to be farmers."
This film imagines Dr. William J. Mayo recalling an actual event from his childhood, when he and his brother, Charlie, accompanied their father on a journey to perform a difficult operation. On that memorable day, Will and Charlie learned the values of compassion, teamwork and dedication to the needs of the patient—values that became the foundation of Mayo Clinic.
This film is based on a true story from the Mayo brothers' boyhood when they learned the importance of working together to serve patients.
