Reaching New Levels of Excellence
Founded in 1869 and chartered as the state’s first medical college in 1881, we became part of the University of Nebraska in 1902. Today, our education programs train more health professionals than any other institution in the state.
Our scientists and clinicians are at the leading edge of discovering new medical breakthroughs, transforming lives across the state and around the world.
Led by Chancellor Jeffrey P. Gold, M.D., UNMC offers the full range of academic health sciences programs through its 6 colleges, 2 degree-granting institutes and Graduate Studies, serving more than 4,400 students in about 90 programs. Our physician assistant program was recently ranked ninth in the nation by U.S. News & World Report, and our primary care program was ranked 17. The university’s physical therapy, pharmacy and public health programs also are ranked among the top in the country. With a goal to educate physicians in a high-quality environment, we offer nearly 70 residency and fellowship programs and train more than 600 house officers.
Our medical faculty practice through our primary clinical partner Nebraska Medicine, which has hospitals in Omaha and Bellevue, as well as about 40 ambulatory clinics throughout the Omaha metropolitan area. We also work closely with the Omaha VA and Madonna Rehabilitation. You'll find services in nearly 50 specialties, including cancer, neuroscience and heart science.
