About Us

A commitment to improving the health care of Nebraskans and beyond.

A vital enterprise in the nation’s heartland, the University of Nebraska Medical Center has its eye on improving the future of health care in Nebraska and beyond.

As Nebraska’s only public academic health sciences center, UNMC is committed to the education of a 21st century health care work force, to finding cures and treatments for devastating diseases, to providing the best care for patients, and to serving our state and its communities through award-winning outreach. UNMC also is committed to embracing the richness of diversity, and is a major economic engine for the state of Nebraska.

Led by Chancellor Harold M. Maurer, M.D., UNMC has six colleges and two institutes, serving more than 3,400 students in more than two dozen programs. Our primary care program was recently ranked 7th in the nation by U.S. News & World Report, and our rural health medicine program ranked 15th. The university’s physician assistant, physical therapy, pharmacy, and nursing master's programs also were ranked as among the top in the country.
