Rochester updates (January 2016)

Destination Medical Center (DMC)
The Med City Beat, a Rochester online-only news service, partnered with University of Minnesota Rochester (UMR) students to create an in-depth report on Destination Medical Center (DMC), the plan to make “Rochester the world’s premier medical destination”. The project was part of UMR's Community Collaboratory (Co-Lab) course where students partner with community organizations. The course aims to extend a student's learning experience into the local community in an way that also adds value to the community.

Health Scholars Day on Saturday
UMR is busy planning for their first Health Scholars Day on Saturday, February 20. This invitation only, day long event is for students who have been admitted and identified their “passion for health care”. Scholarship competitions will take place in the afternoon, with interviews, displays or storytelling, followed by a Chancellor’s dinner and guest speaker. Health Scholars Scholarships range from $1,000-$8,000

  • Health Care Passion Scholarship 
  • Difference Maker Scholarship
  • Health CORE (Community of Respect and Empowerment) Scholarship

Comings and goings
