The UND School of Medicine & Health Sciences partners with a variety of organizations
on in the areas of biomedical research and medical education, including:
The UND School of Medicine & Health Sciences joined the AMA's ACE consortium in 2016
in an effort to enhance medical education through advanced simulation and telemedicine
technologies to develop skills specific to the needs of rural or remote communities.
This program involves teams of interprofessional students and teaches interprofessional
competencies along with rural health care skills.
The Dakota Cancer Collaborative on Translational Activity (DaCCoTA) brings together
researchers and clinicians with diverse experience from across the region to develop
unique and innovative means of combating cancer in North and South Dakota.

an effective system and infrastructure that will transform and advance clinical and
translational research (CTR) across Nebraska, Kansas, North Dakota, and South Dakota.
Since 2018, UND has been a partner in the Sustainable Heartland Accelerator Regional Partnership (SHARP) Hub. SHARPHub helps fast track early stage science and biomedical technologies into startup companies to develop technologies into products and services. The innovative technology transfer hub collaborates and shares resources and best practices with partners in a five-state region—Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma, North Dakota and South Dakota.
