Education

Preparing the best health care professionals for 21st century challenges.

Always with its eye on the territory ahead, UNMC is dedicated to educating the next century of health care professionals with the latest in teaching tools, technology and facilities.

More than 3,200 students attend UNMC.  They seek degrees in allied health professions, dentistry, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, public health, and a number of graduate programs.  Opportunities also abound in several postdoctoral programs and in medical residencies. Students at UNMC learn in an environment that embraces the innovation of tomorrow while maintaining low student-to-faculty ratios and small-group learning.

Because of UNMC’s burgeoning research enterprise, students learn from scientists and clinicians who are at the leading edge of discovering new breakthroughs for life. Many of our students also can engage in the rich cultures of Omaha, working in student-run clinics that assist underserved populations in the city.

UNMC is committed to its statewide presence, as well. With brick-and-mortar nursing campuses in Omaha, Lincoln, Kearney, Scottbluff and Norfolk – as well as an extensive array of distance learning opportunities – UNMC is reaching across the state and around the world. These efforts mean a better life and a stronger economy for all Nebraskans, no matter where they live.
