Our aim is to draw from people with a variety of backgrounds and life experiences to reach a new level of innovation in teaching, research, and patient care.

With an abundance of clinical training sites, the education programs within the department are uniquely situated to take advantage of the Twin Cities’ advanced, well-organized health care market.
