History of HSEC

The University of Minnesota has one of the most comprehensive health science centers in the nation and teaches 70% of the state's health professionals, including physicians, nurses, dentists, pharmacists, veterinarians and public health professionals.

The Health Sciences Education Center is a result of former Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton’s 2015 Blue Ribbon Commission that recognized the need to strengthen the University’s ability to serve as a statewide healthcare resource for providers and patients and address the healthcare workforce, aging population and increased chronic needs.
