Project Summary: Rapidly growing interest and innovation in the field of regenerative medicine is countered by the limitation in the tools to educate the next-generation physician workforce. Previous funding from Regenerative Medicine Minnesota allowed us to engage nearly 300 students and faculty across the state. This proposal renewal aims to continue integration of regenerative medicine education (i.e., one-week course, online webinar series, medical guidebook) in the medical curriculum with the goal to train over 1000 medical students and resident physicians in Minnesota; a first-of-its-kind in the nation, preparing the next-generation workforce to address unmet patient needs through regenerative sciences.
