Driven to Train Healthcare Leaders

The programs offered by our top-ranked Department of Family Medicine and Community Health have a broad impact in the state. Approximately 70 percent of Minnesota's physicians trained at the University of Minnesota Medical School and 62 percent of our alumni that started at the Medical School's Duluth campus serve communities with populations of less than 50,000.

  • Our residency clinics provide primary care and behavioral health services in Minnesota’s underserved communities;
  • Provide hands-on community outreach experiences for our future doctors; and
  • Reduce future public health costs through preventative care.

Thank you, Advocates, for Supporting Our Family Medicine Programs

Thanks to the state of Minnesota, the University of Minnesota Medical School's Department of Family Medicine and Community Health was provided the funding needed to secure our education, clinical research, and patient care programs. Now the University can maintain its ability to train family physicians, continue health disparities research and care of the underserved.

Our state healthcare systems, hospitals, and clinics provide learning opportunities for medical students and residents who become members of the healthcare workforce and ultimately valued community physicians. Without state funding, these training programs would not be possible in our rural and urban communities.
