The Bachelor of Science in Health Professions (BSHP) is an educational collaboration between the University of Minnesota Rochester (UMR) and Mayo School of Health Sciences (MSHS). The BSHP is a junior admitting program at UMR. Students can complete lower-division (first year - second year) courses at UMR or at another regionally accredited university or college. Students must complete all University of Minnesota liberal education and theme requirements prior to admission. The BSHP Program focuses on development of technical skills, clinical research applications, health care management and clinical practicum experiences. The curriculum has a broad focus and includes rigorous science foundations and liberal education courses. Students are prepared to become certified health professionals where increased technical complexity and strong cognitive abilities are needed due to specialization and new technologies in health care.
Students will receive a Bachelor of Science in Health Professions degree from the University of Minnesota Rochester and a certificate from Mayo School of Health Sciences in their respective track and be eligible to take the appropriate professional certification examinations.
Students majoring in the health professions are admitted into one of four tracks:
Echocardiography - Ultrasound to assess cardiovascular anatomy and function
Radiography - Medical imaging to assess and assist in the treatment of injury and disease
Respiratory Care - Assessment of cardiopulmonary systems to treat and monitor heart and lung problems
