COVID-19 Updates

Fall 2020 updates from the
Pre-Health Student Resource Center

The challenges presented by COVID-19 continue to shape our daily life, and we want you to know that the top priority of the Pre-Health Student Resource Center and the University of Minnesota is the health, safety, and well-being of our community.

Supporting Students Remotely

As we start the Fall 2020 semester, the PHSRC continues to operate remotely. We want to stress that we are still here to support students in their exploration of health careers and preparation for application! We welcome students to email ([email protected]) with questions during this time, schedule a virtual or phone appointment with a career counselor, or sign up for one of our Virtual Drop-In Sessions.

Email is the preferred method of communication at this time, as all our staff are working remotely. If you do call, you will need to leave a voicemail - please include a phone number or email address in your voicemail so we can reach out to you.


We will be continuing to assess these decisions and follow guidance from University of Minnesota leadership and the MN Department of Health. We will update this page, our Facebook, and our Twitter with any changes. We encourage you to keep up healthy behaviors that prevent COVID-19 and other illnesses, including good handwashing, covering your mouth when you sneeze or cough, and in particular, staying home when you are feeling unwell.

The best up-to-date resource for UMN system-wide information on COVID-19 updates and action, including University FAQs and messages from UMN leadership, can be found on the Safe Campus website.

Please reach out to us with your questions and concerns. If you need support during these uncertain times, please reach out to one of the on campus resources for Student Mental Health. More resources, including information for staff and for each system campus are found on this FAQ page. We appreciate your flexibility and understanding as we all move through these turbulent times.
