What the MMA Foundation is doing


Thanks to you,  31 medical students have received MMA Foundation Scholarships. With the support of Minnesota physicians and others, MMA Foundation continues its longstanding commitment to medical students by awarding scholarships to medical students at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities and Duluth campuses and at Mayo Clinic Alix School of Medicine.

Reaching Underserved Communities

Rural and Urban Physician Loan Forgiveness

Thanks to you, more young physicians can chose to practice in medically underserved communities throughout Minnesota.  Through a unique partnership with the Minnesota Department of Health -  Office of Rural Health and Primary Care, MMA Foundation has provided additional support for the Rural and Urban Physician Loan Forgiveness programs.  As a result, six additional physicians practicing in medically underserved communities are now providing primary care to 13,000 additional Minnesotans!

Physician Volunteerism Program (PVP)

Physician volunteers find meaningful and fulfilling volunteer opportunities working in Minnesota's social benefit organizations. Whether its seeing patients in a community clinic or using your experience and perspective as a physician in some other capacity, volunteer physicians are improving healthcare and the health of fellow Minnesotans through voluntary action. Thirty volunteer sites throughout Minnesota are looking for your help today.
