Student with a microscope

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 4,000 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, medical residencies, and in two degree-granting institutes: the Eppley Institute for Cancer Research and the Munroe-Meyer Institute for Developmental Disabilities.

Students at UNMC learn in an environment that embraces the innovation of tomorrow while maintaining low student-to-faculty ratios and small-group learning. The iEXCEL program is a transformative model for health care education, training and research providing interprofessional and experiential learning opportunities to our students and learners of all ages.

UNMC is committed to its statewide presence, as well. With brick-and-mortar nursing campuses in Omaha, Lincoln, Kearney, Scottsbluff 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. Read about UNMC's Rural Health Initiatives.
