The institution of Manitoba (also known as U of M, UManitoba, or UM) is a public research institution in Canada's Manitoba province. It is the first university in western Canada and was established in 1877. The institution of Manitoba is the largest institution in the province of Manitoba and the 17th largest in all of Canada, both in terms of overall student enrollment and campus size. With several campuses spread out over the city, its main campus is situated in the southern Winnipeg neighborhood of Fort Garry. The University of Manitoba operates three more significant campuses in addition to the Fort Garry campus, which serves as its hub: the Bannatyne Campus, the James W. Burns Executive Education Centre, and the William Norrie Centre. The institution also oversees the Winnipeg neighborhood of Saint Boniface's French-language affiliate, Université de Saint-Boniface. The university asserts that it continues to be known as a top research-intensive post-secondary educational institution, conducting more research each year than any other university in the area and consistently ranking among the best in the Canadian Prairies for both its competitive academic and research programs. As a result of research at the University of Manitoba, several well-known contributions have been made, including the development of canola oil in the 1970s. Similarly, U of M graduates include, among many others, Nobel Prize winners, Academy Award winners, Order of Merit recipients, and Olympic medalists. The University of Manitoba has awarded 99 Rhodes Scholarships as of 2019, more than any other university in western Canada.Additionally, the institution has produced a large number of public officials, including as Supreme Court justices, province premiers, and Members of Parliament (MPs). The University of Minnesota is a part of Universities Canada, the U15 group of research-intensive Canadian universities, and the Association of Commonwealth Universities, among other international connections.

In partnership with the Shared Health degree of Genetics and Metabolism, the Department of Biochemistry and Medical Genetics offers a two-year degree in genetic counseling (MSc). Through the Accreditation Council for Genetic Counseling (ACGC), this program has full accreditation status. Genetic counseling combines knowledge of the complex social and ethical issues raised by genetic abnormalities with a sympathetic understanding of the psychological costs they entail. In addition to jobs in business, public health, and the genomics laboratory, genetic counselors are highly skilled healthcare experts who work in all areas of genetics, including cancer, prenatal, pediatric, and metabolic genetics. Our primary goal is to promote excellence in the delivery of genetic health care, multidisciplinary and collaborative research, and education while maximizing genetic health by linking bench research to the bedside and beyond. The goal of this program is to provide outstanding academic, clinical, and research training for genetic counselors so they can deliver cutting-edge, individualized genomic health care in Manitoba and elsewhere.
