For our country’s health care system to truly evolve, we need to start with our students. Only from new interprofessional education models can we properly train our future health care providers to be focused on teamwork, cooperation, and new ways of thinking.
The University of Minnesota’s health sciences curriculum trains our students for success within a changing health care landscape.
More than 7,000 students are enrolled in more than 60 degree programs across the health sciences at the University of Minnesota. Even more impressive, though, is how our students work together.
In 2012 we became the nation’s first coordinating center for interprofessional education. This has been impacting education in Minnesota and nationwide.
