The University of Mississippi School of Medicine (UMSOM) is one of the graduate schools of the University of Mississippi. It is an American medical school and was created in 1903 on the Oxford, Mississippi campus. The School of Medicine was used as a hospital during the Civil War for both Union and Confederate soldiers, especially those who were wounded at the Battle of Shiloh. In 1955, it was moved from the Oxford campus to the state capital of Jackson and was expanded to include the third and fourth years of training. The University of Mississippi Medical Center, the health sciences campus of the University of Mississippi, houses the School of Medicine. As of 2006, there were 413 students enrolled in the SOM. This includes students enrolled in the four year M.D. program as well as students enrolled in the seven year M.D./PhD program.
