Metropolitan State University now is offering Healthcare and Wellness Services for enrolled Metropolitan State students. The university will be providing healthcare services in partnership with Fairview Healthcare Services. We are implementing these services because all four-year institutions in the Minnesota State System are required by Minnesota Law (State Statue 136.F20 Student Health) to provide health care services for students.

Enrolled Metropolitan State students will have access to healthcare services in two ways:

  1. Utilizing the telemedicine (online) platform called, Oncare (formerly called, Zipnosis)
  2. Participating in other health and wellness initiative throughout the year
