UNMC's global mission is to promote health through excellence in education, research, outreach, and care by creating accountable and strategic partnerships. The International Health and Medical Education office supports this mission through the facilitation of collaborations and partnerships. Strategic partnerships may be with not-for-profit and for profit entities locally, nationally, and internationally. The benefits of these partnerships provide necessary resources to support student and faculty exchanges and promote research.

IHME also develops and promotes opportunities for faculty, staff, and students to participate in global health education and to provide services associated with educational and employment opportunities for international participants.
