Outreach Programs

At the University of Minnesota, we know there's a lot we can learn from our differences. That is why we work to attract and support a diverse student body as varied as the communities we serve.

Through a variety of programs and opportunities, our students work with different populations, cultures, and communities, including under- and uninsured populations.

We know that some of the best medical practitioners are those who approach their patients with sensitivity and a heightened understanding of individual needs.

 

We seek out partnerships with hospitals and clinics in urban, rural, and minority communities across our state and beyond. These experiences help students become well-rounded practitioners who recognize and understand cultural differences and the unique needs of various types of communities.

University of Minnesota Medical School offers global health outreach programs to help students make an impact outside our own borders.

Each program is part of delivering on our promise of sharing resources and discoveries – with the citizens of Minnesota and people around the world.
