Opened in 1807, the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) is Maryland’s public health, law, and human services university, dedicated to excellence in education, research, clinical care, and public service.
UMB enrolls over 7,200 students in six nationally ranked professional schools — dentistry, law, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, and social work — and an interdisciplinary Graduate School. The University offers 86 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. UMB’s extramural funding totaled $682 million in Fiscal Year 2021, and each tenured/tenure-track faculty member brings $1.5 million in research grants, on average, into UMB every year.
UMB’s 14-acre BioPark is Baltimore’s biggest biotechnology cluster, with three dozen tenants and more than 1,000 employees. The research park fuels the commercialization of new drugs, treatments, and medical devices.
