For hungry minds ready to discover

A Blugold's future in health care begins on campus and quickly moves into the community. With resume-building internships and immersive learning practices, UW-Eau Claire will transform your college journey into a powerful education and a fulfilling career. Working with a variety of disciplines, the UW-Eau Claire and Mayo Clinic Health System research collaboration benefits students from a multitude of majors and will help you stand out from the crowd. 

Purposeful learning, experiential curriculum

The future is now inside UW-Eau Claire classrooms. We recently offered a course in biomedical 3-D printing, a collaboration with faculty in Materials Science and Biomedical Engineering and physicians in the Radiology Department at Mayo Clinic Health System. Students were introduced to medical imaging technologies and their use in generating 3-D printed models. These models are unique to an individual patient’s anatomy and can be used by surgeons and clinicians in planning for surgical procedures and in patient education.

This is the type of research usually reserved for graduate students at other universities, but at UWEC, you could be doing this during your first year as an undergraduate.

In the business of excellent health care

For the third year in a row, marketing and management students worked to find solutions for a specific business problem proposed by Mayo Clinic Health System. Most recently, students focused on helping Mayo Clinic meet patient expectations for cardiac care and leverage virtual care to improve cardiovascular access and care delivery. 

The student teams worked on three diverse business solutions to fulfill the clinic’s vision: competitive analysis and market scanning, product/market development and promotional plan development.

Mayo Clinic Health System operations administrator Shane Smith was among those who facilitated lectures and coaching sessions as well as answered student questions.

“I was impressed with the engagement of the students through their very thoughtful processing of the business problem and outside-of-the-box thinking. The students’ commitment to the project and openness to learn was palpable.”
