About HSEC

Today’s new models of health care require different professions to work together in close collaboration, using new strategies and new technologies. Preparing for that world requires new ways of teaching and learning for our students.

The Health Sciences Education Center is designed to transform health education in Minnesota by moving from the lecture hall to active, team-based learning in the same type of small-group environments that students will encounter as practicing healthcare professionals.

As the hub for all the health professional schools, HSEC’s spaces promote interprofessional education and interaction as well as foster a culture that values student and faculty well-being.
