About Creighton’s School of Medicine

Forming Doctors Who Care for the Whole Person

Creighton University School of Medicine has been dedicated to forming medical students in the Catholic, Jesuit tradition- mind, body and soul- for over 130 years. Cura personalis, “care for the whole person,” is at the heart of not only how we form future physicians, but also how Creighton physicians serve patients.

Between our two campuses, 850+ medical students are on their way to become world changers in medicine and beyond.
