U of M Medical School COVID-19 Information

The University of Minnesota Medical School is closely monitoring the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Our clinicians are prepared, our hospital is the only federally-designated containment center in the upper Midwest and our investigators are working on possible prevention and treatments, as well as developing a greater understanding of this virus. Above all, the health, safety and wellbeing of our staff, faculty and students is our top priority as we respond to this rapidly evolving situation.


Faculty at the Medical School are actively engaged in research on COVID-19 that will result in new knowledge, treatments and drug trials. View information on our clinical trials, CO:VID Grants and the Guiding Principles for Research.

Faculty or P&A educators at the University of Minnesota Medical School can apply for COVID-19 Medical Education Innovation Grants to develop education (basic science or clinical) and simulation projects related to COVID-19, more general pandemic-related knowledge and skills or professional development activities that would be possible during this stay-at-home order. These could be curricular (credit-eligible — i.e., elective) activities to engage and inform learners about the current pandemic.
