UNMC Enrollment Sets Record for 18th Straight Year
Student enrollment at the University of Nebraska Medical Center (www.unmc.edu) set another record high for the 18th straight year with 3,970 students enrolled for the 2018-19 school year, an increase of 62 students or 1.6 percent over last year’s record of 3,908.
“We are very pleased to see our student body size increase for a record 18th year,” said Dele Davies, M.D., UNMC senior vice chancellor for academic affairs and dean for graduate studies. “This increase reflects our strong commitment to continue addressing the demand for highly skilled health care providers in rural and urban Nebraska as well as our ongoing commitment to providing the highest quality training environment, faculty, and staff for our students in order to help meet this need.”
“While there was an increase across-the-board in most of our programs, we saw significant growth in our doctor of nursing practice, allied health and graduate studies programs in particular,” UNMC chancellor Jeffrey P. Gold, M.D., said. “UNMC’s strong enrollment numbers bode well for the state’s long-term health care workforce needs. Many of our graduates stay in Nebraska, or return after their residencies, and provide critical health care access and services.”
