Combined, the six schools of the Academic Health Center educate and train 70% of
Minnesota’s dentists, advanced nurse practitioners, pharmacists, physicians, public health professionals, and veterinarians. In addition, many graduates become researchers and faculty in Minnesota, nationally and internationally. The growing demand for health professionals, the increasing cost of health professional education, the decreasing public investment in health professional education, and the shift to community-based education partnerships in Minnesota necessitates an analysis of how we will meet the state’s future health professional workforce needs.
The documents (preliminary report and executive summary) provide guidance for improving health professional education, including monitoring and reporting, faculty appointment and development, interprofessional education, and budget and financial aid planning.
