Southwest-Southcentral Minnesota is known as Prairie Land--an area filled with grasslands and blue skies as far as the eye can see. This part of the state is unique in its abundance of prairie grassland, bison herds, and rich cultural history of early pioneer life and Native American heritage sites.  This region is home to some of Minnesota’s great writers and artists. Find a folk art school in the middle of the prairie and take a class, attend a concert, play, or take part in other cultural events. You can explore the Minnesota River Valley by visiting historical sites, and reading stories. Discover the essence of this area through history, culture, and art.  This section of the state is highly saturated with rich farmland and much of the industry is focused around agriculture.  Southwest and Southcentral Minnesota has a very high concentration of bald eagles - unique in the continental United States. Bird-watching is a common hobby in this area, along with fishing, biking, hiking, and just cruising along the byways with great scenic tours for motorcyclists and cruisers alike. 

Southwest-Southcentral Minnesota consists of 27 counties and contains over 50 cities, with a regional population of 494,951 people. This region of Minnesota is bordered by South Dakota to the West and Iowa to the South. This region has the lowest cost of living around, low crime and has an average commute time of less than 10 minutes!

Minnesota is committed to helping all Minnesotans obtain access to quality, affordable health care. Due to the difficulties some areas experience recruiting and retaining physicians, many communities turn to international medical graduates and J-1 Visa Waivers to fill their physician vacancies. The Minnesota Department of Health's Office of Rural Health and Primary Care developed this guide to the J-1Visa Waiver Review and Recommendation Process.
