The UND School of Medicine
The UND School of Medicine & Health Science is the only medical school in North Dakota. It has offered a 4-year medical degree since 1976. It admits approximately 78 students into its medical program each year and provides a comprehensive hands-on learning experience. This expedites the learning process while giving real-world experience to its students, making them ready for what’s to come.
The scholarships provided to UND school of Medicine students gives more than a pathway for future skin care doctors, surgeons, and medical care providers across the board to attain the careers of their choice. These scholarships have also changed the landscape of student debt. UND School of Medicine at one time had one of the highest student debt averages in the nation. Now, due to these scholarships, medical student debt is well below the national average when compared to other medical schools throughout the U.S.
