Outpatient activities are in the Primary Care Center and other clinics of Minnesota Health (M Health) at the University of Minnesota Medical Center. 

Clinical services are provided through the University of Minnesota Physicians, a professional organization with over 700 physicians and 1,400 health professionals who work interprofessionally in primary care and specialty care areas and are dedicated to providing quality patient-focused care.
