Dean Tolar Visits the Medical School, Duluth Campus

The Medical School, Duluth Campus had the pleasure of hosting Dean, Dr. Jakub Tolar during the last week of September.

Dean Tolar had the opportunity of participating and listening to faculty, staff, and students throughout the Duluth Campus present their three-minute thesis presentations demonstrating the breadth of current research projects.

Dean Tolar was also able to connect with individuals from the campus' two departments, Biomedical Sciences and Family Medicine & BioBehavioral Health. The conversations focused on the contributions of faculty and staff through research and the Duluth Campus' efforts towards medical workforce challenges, such as the decline of obstetric services in rural areas.

"Thursday's visit from our Medical School Dean, Dr. Jakub Tolar, provided us with an opportunity to share information about our research mission on the Duluth Campus," said Dr. Paula Termuhlen, Regional Duluth Campus Dean and Professor of Surgery for the University of Minnesota Medical School. "We have so much wonderful work happening on our campus!"

Special thanks to Dean Tolar for his visit and shared compassion for the Duluth Campus and the wider community we impact.
