Additional Programs

Lectures, exams and an incredible amount of information are standard for medical school. Ethics, problem-solving and in-depth study of topics like aging, HIV or preventative medicine offer a complement to the rigors of the classroom.

Small group learning seminars -- also known as ICE -- allow students to explore and discuss subjects such as alternative medicine, social and cultural issues and malpractice.

Problem-based learning sessions challenge students to discuss patient case scenarios, research and offer diagnosis and treatment plan.

For students who want a more in-depth, structured option, enhanced medical education tracks provide them a choice of seven topics to expand their knowledge and still graduate on time.

Students also get many opportunities to learn and practice clinical skills through simulated patients and rotations in rural, underserved areas of Nebraska.
