Early Assurance and Certificate Programs

The unique nature of UMR's Health Sciences degree allows students to get a head start on many health careers.

Since the final capstone year is customizable, it can be used to earn certificates that most students pursue after graduation or to take the first year of graduate coursework in professional programs.

UMR offers these programs in collaboration with a number of other institutions, including the Mayo Clinic School of Health Sciences.


At present, UMR has partnerships with the following programs:
