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.

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. 

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.
