The Center of American Indian and Minority Health strives to raise the health status of American Indians and Alaska Natives by:
recruiting and educating Native American medical students
increasing awareness of American Indian health care issues
conducting research that serves the health interests of Native American communities.
Making an Impact
Since launching in 1987, we have recruited and educated thousands of Native American medical students. Thanks in large part to our efforts, the University of Minnesota Medical School is second in the nation for successfully graduating Native American medical doctors.
