The University is committed to providing trainees with comprehensive medical care for on-the-job injuries. Under Minnesota statute, Medical trainees are considered employees of the University of Minnesota for Workers’ Compensation insurance purposes. When a trainee is injured during training, they must take immediate steps to report the injury to the University.
*The University cannot pay bills for trainee treatment unless an injury report is on file.*
