The primary purpose of the University of North Dakota School of Medicine and Health Sciences is to educate physicians and other health professionals and to enhance the quality of life in North Dakota. Other purposes include the discovery of knowledge that benefits the people of this state and enhances the quality of their lives.
The University of North Dakota School of Medicine was founded in 1905 as a two-year school of basic science located in Science Hall. Its expansion to an M.D. degree-granting program was approved in 1973, and its first class graduated in 1976. The first two years of medical education are provided in Grand Forks, while the third and fourth years are provided in Bismarck, Fargo, Grand Forks and Minot, and other communities around the state.
The School's name was changed in 1996 to the UND School of Medicine and Health Sciences to reflect the diversity of educational and research activities that occur at the School.
