The School of Allied Health Professions wants all students to be successful in their coursework and be active participants in the educational experience. Therefore, all students whose native language (or language of nurture) is not English need to show proof of English proficiency for admission to UNMC. All students must possess the ability to read English with ease, understand English as used in health professions educational and clinical settings, and express thoughts quickly and efficiently in spoken as well as written English.
