Education & Training
At the University of Minnesota, we are educating and inspiring tomorrow’s health care professionals.
Our students across all health professions learn, work, and collaborate together. Our graduates go on to better their communities, heal both animal and human patients, and develop life-changing treatments and cures.
Thousands of health science learners across three system campuses enrolled in 60+ degree programs learn together through our nationally recognized interprofessional education curriculum. We’ve established more than 2,500+ clinical training partnerships across Minnesota, many of them in rural or underserved communities, which serve as training sites for our students.
Spanning all specialties of health care, we are educating and inspiring the next generation of health care professionals. This is education that changes the practice of health care.
