Accelerate advances in health

At the University of Minnesota, creative collaborations across multiple areas of research and care create fertile ground for new approaches in a world where the health of people, animals, and the environment is inextricably interconnected.

The history of the University features pioneers in medical devices, transplantation, infectious diseases, and regenerative medicine, to name just a few. This collective impact continues to grow, thanks to high-quality care facilities that treat more than 1 million annually and an academic health center that trains 70 percent of Minnesota’s health care workforce.

The road ahead

We will bring about profound change in quality of life for the people of Minnesota, our nation, and the world by:

Fighting infectious diseases and improving global health

Promoting health equity and access for all

Preventing and treating diseases that threaten both animals and humans

Using new interprofessional education models that focus on teamwork and cooperation to educate the health workforce of the future
