The University of Nebraska College of Medicine is a 4-year MD-granting program that traces its roots back to Omaha Medical College, which welcomed its first class in 1881. The University of Nebraska College of Medicine offers students enhanced tracks in aging and integrative medicine, autoimmune disease, HIV medicine, innovation in clinical medicine, preventive medicine, medical humanities and arts, and underserved healthcare.

This is followed by a Longitudinal Clinical Experience within the first semester.
