June 1, 2023

June 1, 2023 – MINNEAPOLIS - Nearly 3,000 health care professionals completed clinical rotations across HealthPartners last year. That’s one of many highlights outlined in the newly released 2022 Impact Report from the HealthPartners Institute Office of Health Professional Education.

In the past year, the Minneapolis-based integrated health care system resumed in-person observations, created new training programs, and implemented new mentorship models. This training, along with the Institute’s residencies and fellowships, prepares health professionals to provide care to patients across the country.

“We’re training the next generation of health care professionals here at HealthPartners, addressing the workforce challenges that were exacerbated by the pandemic,” said Andrea Walsh, president and CEO of HealthPartners. “The strong learning environment we have at HealthPartners leads to higher performing teams, better care and outcomes and healthier patients and members.”

Highlights from the report include:

  • 2,995 healthcare professionals – nearly half of which were nursing students – completed clinical rotations across HealthPartners.
  • 441 clinician educators precepted students, providing hands-on learning opportunities.
  • 570 undergraduate and graduate students participated in trainings at the HealthPartners Institute Clinical Simulation Center, which is currently undergoing a $5 million relocation and expansion project that will enhance health professional learning experiences.
  • A new partnership with People Incorporated that provides third-year medical school students with an opportunity to learn more about social determinants of health while supporting mental health needs of our community.
  • The creation of a Mobile Mentorship Lab, where members of HealthPartners mentor network facilitate discussions across the organization and better support career growth and satisfaction among colleagues.
