The University of Nebraska Medical Center is the second least-expensive among the top primary care medical schools ranked by U.S. News & World Report, according to an analysis by Becker’s ACS Review.

Among the top 12 ranked institutions, Becker’s ASC found that UNMC, which ranked seventh in the March 2022 U.S. News list, cost $35,360 a year to attend, as opposed to $66,284 a year for Harvard, ranked ninth, or $59,126 for the University of Pittsburgh, tied for 10th.

Jeffrey P. Gold, MD, chancellor of UNMC, said the analysis underscored UNMC and the University of Nebraska’s commitment to the people of the state.

“UNMC is committed to improving the health and transforming the lives of the people of Nebraska,” he said. “We offer cutting-edge educational opportunities and technology – one of the reasons we are among this list of premier institutions — and we do it for a tuition cost that compares favorably to our peers. True affordability and quality education is truly high value for Nebraskans.”

UNMC’s College of Medicine admits approximately 130 students annually.

Overall, UNMC has six colleges, two institutes and a graduate studies program, serving more than 4,400 students in about 90 programs. The med center has reported record enrollments for the past 20 years and trains more health professionals than any other institution in Nebraska.

“We’re proud to train the future health care workforce for Nebraska and the surrounding regions,” said UNMC College of Medicine Dean Bradley Britigan, MD. “Our graduates are well prepared to excel in residency training and professional practice, and focused on providing patients the highest quality care possible.”
