UMR graduates smiling with Rockie Raptor


I recently was accepted at the University of Minnesota Duluth Family Medicine Residency program. My educational experience at UMR far exceeded my expectations. The thing I valued most is the professional development I received and the close interactions with UMR faculty that have allowed me to feel comfortable speaking with patients and their families. This professionalism stems from a solid foundation that was integrated throughout the UMR curriculum.” — Hannah Salk, M.D., UMR Alumna

A collaboration between UMR Alumni Relations and Career Development, the Alumni Mentorship Program provides an opportunity for Raptor alumni to connect with current UMR students.


The Alumni Mentor Program connects Raptor alumni with current students who share the same areas of professional and academic interest. By virtue of their rich experiences and expertise in the field, mentors provide insight into career paths, choosing the right graduate program, and learning how to develop and expand professional networks.

Something to note when you graduate: Your email inbox will remain active for a minimum of three semesters after the last term in which you were registered. During this time, UMR will use your email address for official communications, and it is important that you check your email regularly or have it forwarded to an address which you actively monitor.

Your inbox may remain active for up to five years (and possibly longer) after your last registration; however, to keep it active longer, you must access it at least once every six months. If your account lapses, you will have the option to contact us and request that we reopen it. Contact 1-HELP Technology Helpline at 612-301-4357.

Donor support is important at UMR and will continue to be a vital component for the future.
