Region: Mississippi Country: USA

School of Medicine
The University of Mississippi School of Medicine offers a course of study leading to the degree of Doctor of Medicine. The four-year course leading to the degree of Doctor of Medicine is accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education.


The School of Medicine strives to offer an excellent, comprehensive and interrelated program of medical education, biomedical research and health care. Through these programs, the ultimate goal of the School is to provide quality and equitable health care to all citizens of Mississippi, the region and nation. A core value of this mission is respect for the multiple dimensions of diversity reflected in all people.

In support of this mission, the School of Medicine (SOM) offers an accredited program of medical education that trains a diverse, skilled, compassionate and respectful physician workforce in numbers consistent with the health care needs of Mississippi, professionals who are responsive to the health problems of the people, aware of health care disparities and committed to medical education as a continuum which must prevail throughout professional life.

In addition, the School of Medicine seeks to expand the body of basic and applied knowledge in biomedical sciences for the state, nation and the world, and to improve systems of health care delivery and demonstrate model patient care for all members of our diverse community.


The School of Medicine is proud to be part of Mississippi's only academic health science campus. Fulfillment of the school's mission requires student, faculty, administration and staff respect for and appreciation of the rich cultural heritage and growing diversity of the citizens of Mississippi, including their:

  • Demographic attributes (race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, educationally or financially disadvantaged background, socioeconomic status, marital and family status, rural, state and national origin, languages spoken, religious and spiritual beliefs, and culture);
  • Personal attributes (including integrity, communication, skills and abilities, disabilities work habits, interactions with people, desire to learn);
  • Life experiences (including healthcare, community service, leadership, teamwork and employment).
Diversity, inclusion and cultural humility enrich the teaching and learning environment; students think more vigorously and imaginatively, enhancing their preparation as citizens and professionals committed to providing all patients, including those from underserved populations, access to quality and equitable health care that can ameliorate the health care disparities of Mississippians and the nation through medical education, biomedical research and patient care.

Welcome to the School of Medicine
As both a former student, faculty member and now vice dean, I can say that our medical school is among the finest in the country.

It began in Oxford on the University of Mississippi's main campus in 1903 as a two-year certificate program. In 1955, the school moved to Jackson where its curriculum was expanded to four years in the brand new medical center. Since then, UMMC's complex has steadily grown, to now include six schools, four hospitals, and nationally recognized research centers in cardiovascular/renal, cancer, obesity, neurodegenerative disorders, and women's health.

With an increased interest in the health professions, the School of Medicine's enrollment and course offerings have also grown, and in the fall of 2011, we reached a record enrollment of 485 students.

As proud as we are of our history, we take just as much pride in our future - a future vested in the lives and careers of prospective medical students just like you. In time, we want to help solve some of Mississippi's previously intractable health dilemmas: access to care and the disparities of health status.
