We Are UMB

Davidge Hall

As one of Baltimore’s most impactful anchor institutions, UMB exercises its influence, assets, and expertise to effect genuine, lasting change in the city.


Founded in 1807, UMB is Maryland’s public health, law, and human services university. Occupying 72 acres in downtown Baltimore, we are a pre-eminent institution for graduate and professional education and a prominent academic health center combining cutting-edge biomedical research and exceptional clinical care.

In 2019, UMB enrolled 6,827 students in six nationally ranked professional schools – medicine, law, dentistry, pharmacy, nursing, and social work – and an interdisciplinary graduate school. We offer 76 degree and certificate programs and confer the majority of professional practice doctoral degrees awarded each year in Maryland.

UMB faculty, staff, and students contribute more than 2 million hours annually in volunteer service to Marylanders and deliver $40 million in uncompensated care.
