School Overview

School Info

In the Catholic, Jesuit tradition of Creighton University, the mission of the School of Medicine is to improve the human condition through excellence in educating students, physicians and the public, advancing knowledge, and providing comprehensive patient care. Our vision: we will be a School of Medicine respected by our peers for excellence in teaching, research, and clinical care. We will be distinguished for preparing graduates who achieve excellence in their chosen fields and who demonstrate an extraordinary compassion and commitment to the service of others.

Curriculum

The goal of the first year is to provide a strong foundation in basic biomedical science to prepare students for detailed basic science content that occurs within the clinically oriented system courses that begin later in the first year. The goal of the second year is to provide the opportunity to learn basic science in depth and to learn introductory aspects of clinical medicine. The third year comprises the core clinical clerkships. Having been exposed to the breadth of medicine in the third year, the fourth year prepares students for residency and provides a chance to explore their own interests in specialized areas of medical practice. Competency based evaluation is used in all four years of the educational program and the students are graded on a Pass/No Pass/Honors system.

Facilities

Creighton University has a national reputation for quality patient care and a large number of faculty and research programs with international reputations. The Hixson-Lied Science Building and Criss Health Science Building are the centerpiece of a $56 million initiative, providing Creighton's undergraduate and health professionals science facilities for discovery and implementing a leading approach to teaching and research.

About the LizzyM Score

LizzyM, SDN Moderator and medical school admissions committee member, is the inventor of the LizzyM Score. The score allows you to see if you are a competitive applicant at a given school. If your LizzyM Score is far below or above the average, you may not be a good fit. If your score is far below, your application may be screened out due to numerical cutoffs. If it is far above, the school may assume they are your “safety” school and that you won’t attend if they offer an acceptance. This score should be used only as a guide to help you select schools and is not a guarantee of acceptance at any school. If you use this as your sole criteria to select medical schools to apply to, you don’t deserve to get in anyway.
