School of Medicine & Health Sciences

How will you help heal the world?

Medical School

We offer North Dakota's only four-year doctor of medicine degree. Students spend their first two years in Grand Forks before training at clinical sites across the state.

Health Sciences

In addition to medicine, we offer professional degrees in medical laboratory science, sports medicine, public health, physician assistant studies, and physical and occupational therapy.


Researchers specializing in epigenetics, neurodegenerative diseases, infectious disease, and health disparities conduct over $20 million of research annually. 


Donor support in recent years has helped us lower medical student debt from well above to well below the national average relative to students at other U.S. medical schools.


From our quarterly magazine North Dakota Medicine to our annual community report Vital Signs, the latest UND School of Medicine & Health Sciences publications are all online.

Center for Rural Health

Celebrating 40 years, the CRH is North Dakota's State Office of Rural Health, a federally designated office that helps rural communities build their health services through collaborations with a wide range of partners.
