Today’s health care challenges cannot be solved from one viewpoint or with one kind of expertise. They require different perspectives and different disciplines to come together. That’s why our health sciences students learn together, solve problems together, and develop real-world working relationships.
Clinical Training Partnerships Across MN and the US
The University has 3,000+ clinical training partnerships across Minnesota and beyond, many of them in rural or underserved communities. These serve as training sites for our thousands of health science learners across three system campuses.
Solving Problems Together
Our learners practice interdisciplinary care in order to tackle the real-world, truly difficult health care problems.
Developing Real-world Working Relationships
Providing interprofessional learning opportunities and experiences that allow learners to deepen their knowledge and develop the skills they will need to effectively contribute to team-based, interprofessional collaboration as future health professionals.
