Future Students

UMB is committed to interdisciplinary education.

Among our Graduate School and six professional schools, we offer incoming students a vast array of curriculum options to realize their life goals. Experts in admissions, housing, campus life, and financial aid are waiting to welcome you.

Current Students

Having a wealth of hands-on preceptor programs at UMB allows future physicians, nurses, lawyers, social workers, pharmacists, dentists, and allied health professionals to get a true feel for their chosen profession before graduation — studying here and abroad.

An emphasis on interprofessional education also creates a healthy respect for their future colleagues.

Researchers & Entrepreneurs

UMB’s world-renowned research team attracts more than a half-billion dollars a year in external grants and contracts.

The 14-acre UM BioPark is home to a growing cluster of cutting-edge bioscience companies. UM Ventures, our joint technology commercialization effort with the University of Maryland, College Park, is accelerating the speed at which inventions move from bench to bedside.   


UMB’s commitment to collaboration extends to interactions with its community and business partners.

The founding campus of the University System of Maryland (USM), UMB also is a proud partner of the USM system and its related activities, including MPowering the State, a structured alliance with the University of Maryland, College Park.


Alumni are essential to UMB’s success.

Whether you're mentoring students, taking continuing education classes, supporting fundraising efforts, or attending campus functions, the UMB experience does not end with receiving your diploma.

Faculty and Staff

Shared governance is a priority at UMB.

We believe in a shared responsibility among staff, faculty, administration, and students to promote a collaborative process whereby UMB and the faculty, staff, and students have regular dialogue on important issues of concern to the parties. The common shared objective is to enhance the goals of the institution.

See the USM policy for specific examples.

Imagine What We Will Change Together.

UMB is a catalyst, promoting justice, improving health, and serving the public good of Maryland and the region. Now, more than ever, we seek your support to continue this legacy. Discover Where to Give, Ways to Give, and check out our online giving page.
