Engaging collaborators across disciplines and partnering with local communities
The Office of Academic Clinical Affairs leads several initiatives to advance the University’s clinical mission.
We partnered with world-leading expertise from across the University to create a brain health center that combines clinical and research programs in one place.
We offer several grant programs to help faculty and others find new solutions to vexing health care issues to help create a Minnesota-wide impact that moves knowledge to patients and advances interprofessional education and clinical care.
Through our Center for Interprofessional Health and other initiatives, we support the diverse needs of health professional schools, colleges, and programs system-wide in preparing a collaborative, practice-ready workforce.
The MMRC is a community consortium with a mission to implement a rapid response medical strategy to provide Minnesota the highest survival in the world from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.
We provide leadership of this health sciences-wide effort to provide urgently needed community care initiatives to reduce health disparities.
We provide leadership of this University-wide group of faculty that is developing a comprehensive approach to fight opioid abuse and stop the spread of addiction.
We are committed to driving sustainability action internally within the health sciences and externally through collaborations with our community and clinical partners.
Our rural health efforts are designed to positively impact — in clear and measurable ways — the health and wellbeing of people and communities in rural Minnesota.
