About the MD Program

UNMC prepares medical degree students to meet the health care needs of patients through clinical practice, biomedical science and research, problem-solving and compassion.

Our unique approach exposes students to a mix of basic science and clinical material presented in core subjects instead of the traditional presentation by department (e.g. anatomy, biochemistry, etc.). This allows students to grasp the connectedness of the physical system.

In addition to large lectures, students benefit from small group learning sessions where they examine patient scenarios, discuss a variety of relevant topics and practice their clinical skills on patient simulators.

Completion of the MD Program will mean you are eligible for continued licensure examinations and post-graduate training (i.e., residency) which ultimately lead to licensure in all US States and Territories.  Full licensure may vary between States and Territories.

Students can participate in additional programs which provide in-depth study in a selected area of medicine.
