Supporting scholarships and medical education

Minnesota, your health starts here

The University of Minnesota trains 70% of our state’s doctors. Make sure that those who will take care of your community get the best education possible by investing in medical education at the U. 

At the University of Minnesota Medical School, we’re creating new care models centered on maintaining health, not just treating disease. And from day one, we’re teaching the importance of collaborative, coordinated patient care through hands-on learning experiences on our two campuses and throughout our state.

Your gift to medical education at the U of M today is an investment in top-tier training for Minnesota’s doctors of tomorrow.
