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 the Academic Health Center
will meet the state’s future health professional workforce needs.
Documents (final report and executive summary) providing recommendations to improve the six schools of the Academic Health Center by altering class sizes, defining the role of the University in community partnerships, improving professional training of students, examining costs along with revenue, and incorporating emerging trends in health professional education.
