The whole person

The School of Medicine Dean’s Scholarship supports students living the Creighton mission of service, justice and caring for the whole person. 

With your support, we will continue to bring in some of the best and brightest students in the nation to experience this truly transformative education.

I'm committed to helping patients through difficult times. I'm grateful Creighton has allowed me to pursue this goal.

— Kara Arnold, School of Medicine 

It all starts with scholarships. 

Tuition alone doesn’t fully cover what it costs to educate our students. In fact, it only covers about two-thirds of it. Most of our students receive financial aid or scholarships. Last year alone, Creighton awarded nearly 1,900 scholarships to students across all schools and colleges. 

When you support scholarships, you help our students manage costs and make ends meet. But more than that, you give them a transformative sense of belonging, purpose and personal growth.

You help us form a new generation of Creighton physicians ready to shape the future of health care.

School of Medicine

A transformative education, dedicated to treating the whole person.

Creighton health sciences and CHI Health-affiliated clinics donate millions in charitable medical care to the community.


people treated

The School of Medicine treats more that 1,000 people annually at the free, student-run Magis Medical Clinic at Siena Francis House, Omaha’s largest homeless shelter.



99% of students were accepted into residency programs, and 92% of 2022 graduates matched with their specialty of choice.

The future of care 

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.

Changing Lives

“When you support scholarships, you’re not just changing my life. You’re changing my family’s, too. I'm tearing up just thinking about how much it means to my mother that I'm getting a great education and studying to become a physician. Thank you for helping me come to Creighton. Thank you for helping me make my parents proud.”
