Meeting the moment

Creighton’s School of Medicine stands at a significant moment. We’re looking back on more than 125 years of health care education but also looking ahead to the rapidly shifting landscape of our profession. 

We are ready to meet the moment. Through our clinical partnerships in Omaha and Phoenix, we are preparing some of the most clinic-ready physicians in the country to help meet a growing need for health care professionals.  

As we build upon our expertise in medical education and research, our guiding Jesuit values will continue to show us the way forward — developing women and men of competence and compassion, doing all things for the greater glory of God.

Believing in others

“My affinity toward wanting to improve lives and fighting for the underdog is matched by Creighton, both through service and philanthropy. They give me a reason to believe in others and a way to see their humanity.”

— Matthew Taira, BS’15, MS’16, School of Medicine

The Jesuit tradition

The School of Medicine offers many service opportunities for our students, including the Magis Clinic, which provides medical services to homeless and underserved residents in the Omaha area. These experiences help our students become competent and compassionate physicians as they help meet the needs of our communities.

THE PHYSICIAN I WANT TO BE

“I’m now doing rotations, and sometimes, as I watch the physicians at work, I’m moved to tears. In many cases, they’re caring for people having some of the worst days of their lives. But after years, even decades working with patients, Creighton physicians still bring that same level of compassion and curiosity to every encounter. The values of this education last for life. “That’s the kind of physician I want to be. That’s the kind of physician Creighton is preparing me to become.”

— Pooja Varman, School of Medicine
