Third Year Only

The University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Medicine does not offer transfer or advanced standing to students from foreign medical schools, dental colleges, or graduate programs.  If a vacancy exists, application for advanced standing into the third year will be considered from students attending medical schools accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) or the AOA Commission on Osteopathic College Accreditation (COCA).  The applicant must be eligible for advancement in the medical school of previous enrollment and have compelling reasons for requesting a transfer.  Preference is given to residents of Nebraska. Candidates who desire transfer may request application materials after January 1 by email

The student must furnish evidence of satisfactory completion of courses equivalent in kind and amount to those taken by the class to which admission is sought. The College of Medicine reserves the right, in every case, to give examinations in any or all subjects in which credit is requested. The student must be eligible for promotion at their own medical school and must also present a letter of recommendation from the dean of the medical school last attended. Acceptance is contingent upon successful completion of USMLE Step 1. 

Students who have been dismissed from UNMC or any other medical school will not be considered for transfer/advanced standing at this College of Medicine.
