About UMB

Founded in 1807, the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) is Maryland’s only public health, law, and human services university, dedicated to excellence in education, research, clinical care, and public service.

UMB enrolls more than 6,700 students in six nationally ranked professional schools — medicine, law, dentistry, pharmacy, nursing, and social work — and an interdisciplinary Graduate School. The University offers 60-plus doctoral, master’s, baccalaureate, and certificate programs and confers most of the professional practice doctoral degrees awarded in Maryland.

UMB is a thriving academic health center combining cutting-edge biomedical research and exceptional patient care. The University provides more than $40 million each year in uncompensated care to Maryland citizens and receives over $660 million in extramural research funding annually. UMB’s BioPark, Baltimore’s biggest biotechnology cluster, fuels the commercialization of new drugs, treatments, and devices, giving 1,000 scientists and entrepreneurs the space to create and collaborate.

UMB students, faculty, and staff contribute more than 2 million hours of community service annually to citizens throughout Maryland, providing programming that improves health and wellness, advances justice, promotes economic development, and strengthens families and communities.
