Disparities Education

Education about the impact of health disparities is part of each student’s curriculum. Our goal is to train students to understand, respect and appropriately care for patients from a variety of backgrounds.

Even though many of our staff don't interact with patients on a regular basis, UNMC values a diverse workplace and requires employees to undergo cultural competency training each year. It is important that visitors to campus and co-workers feel accepted, understood and supported without regard to their gender, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, disability, veteran status, religion or culture.
