Patient Outreach

SHARING clinics – service and compassion
Patients receive high quality, low cost health care service and are seen whether or not they have the ability to pay.

The SHARING Clinics are made up of three entirely student-run clinics (supervised by faculty) in the Omaha area – each working to address a specific need. Students from a variety of disciplines – allied health, medicine, nursing – use a team approach to offering care.

  • SHARING clinic (Student Health Alliance Reaching Indigent Needy Groups) - provides general health care for adults and kids.
  • RESPECT clinic (Responsible Early STD Prevention Education and Community Testing) - provides sexually transmitted disease testing & treatment and HIV testing & counseling
  • GOODLIFE clinic (Greater Omaha Outreach for Diabetes Lifestyles Impacting Fitness and Education) - provides diabetes treatment (Type 2).

CHIRS – Consumer Health Information Resource Service
Whether it is a life-altering diagnosis or a need to find new treatment options, medical librarians can find the answers. With the CHIRS program a health sciences librarian will research your condition and provide a tailored package of information that may include journal articles, book chapters, pamphlets and web resources.

Free health information for Nebraska residents and patients at the Nebraska Medical Center, UNMC Physicians and other affiliated hospitals is just a search away.

Maternal-fetal medicine program
Designed to provide care to women across Nebraska, the maternal-fetal medicine program gives patients and their doctors access to specialists at UNMC. Each month, our physicians travel to two satellite clinic locations: Mary Lanning Hospital in Hastings and Contemporary Ob/Gyn in Kearney. The program allows patients to receive care closer to home. And UNMC specialists can consult with local doctors.

HIV Program
Patients receive comprehensive care from a team of physicians, nurse practitioners, and registered nurses who specialize in every stage of HIV care. The team also consists of social workers, a dietician/nutritionist, and a psychiatrist. In addition, the HIV clinic has a variety of resources for patients.

The HIV Program also is involved in cutting-edge research as part of the AIDS Clinical Trials Group (ACTG) as well as other sponsored studies. Staff provides education to healthcare professionals at the Nebraska AIDS Education and Training Center (NAETC)

Students Manage All Aspects of the Clinic
Students and faculty work together to make sure patients have affordable health care options. Since students manage the SHARING clinics, they share the responsibilities to:
  • Care for patients
  • Raise money to buy supplies
  • Secure donations from pharmacies & more
