Bachelor of Science in Health Professions
The Bachelor of Science in Health Professions (BSHP) is an educational collaboration between the University of Minnesota Rochester (UMR) and Mayo Clinic School of Health Sciences (MCSHS). As part of the BSHP program, students will gain unparalleled experiences at Mayo Clinic, where health professionals address the health and treatment needs of patients from around the world each day.
The challenging, high-quality curriculum progressively builds students' expertise while advancing through the program. All courses are delivered in Rochester. Some coursework is delivered in a blended electronic and classroom format. Academic coursework is offered at UMR or MCSHS and is coordinated with clinical rotations at Mayo Clinic to optimize the learning experience. The upper-division curriculum is two years in length, and all programs require a summer session between years three and four. Each program also charges an additional program fee to make up for the difference in tuition between UMR and MCSHS. Grades in the required courses must be at least a C. All courses in the track must be taken A-F, unless the course is only offered S-N. All students will participate in the same curriculum in years three and four.
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.
Students majoring in the health professions are admitted into one of four tracks:
