Take advantage of our small class sizes.

Creighton University’s School of Medicine has been training health professionals for more than 125 years. Our medical microbiology and immunology program provides students with the specialized equipment, broad expertise and resources of a larger university, but with smaller class sizes. This advantage allows for each student to have regular interaction with faculty members and other students in their cohort, as well as additional hands-on training with research equipment and tools in the lab. By focusing on a small group of students, our faculty can cover each topic in the program with more depth, which leads to a comprehensive, well-rounded education.
