Career Day

15th Annual Rural Health Career Day - 9/18/2012

The UNMC Student Association for Rural Health, the Rural Health Education Network, and the Nebraska Area Health Education Center Program office invite you to attend the Rural Health Career Day at the UNMC campus in Omaha on the third Tuesday in September

Over 200 high schools within a three-hour drive of Omaha have been invited to participate in the UNMC Career Day this fall. This event is an excellent opportunity for counselors, teachers, parents, and students to learn about health profession programs offered through UNMC.

There will be a $10 fee assessed for each student and a $5 fee for each adult. Due to the large number of schools invited, space will be limited to 15 students from Class A schools, 10 students from Class B schools, 5 students from Class C and D schools. Space is available for the first 300 students who register.

Registration forms must be submitted by the student’s sponsor or chaperone.
Students can choose 3 of these areas to learn more about:

  • Behavioral Health
  • Clinical Laboratory Science
  • Dentistry / Dental Hygiene
  • Medicine
  • Medical Nutrition
  • Nursing
  • Pharmacy
  • Physical Therapy
  • Physician Assistant
  • Public Health
  • Radiation Sciences


This program is put together so that high school students can learn about the health profession programs offered through UNMC. In order to maximize the learning experience that this occasion provides for your students, the event will not be interrupted with campus tours.

As the Career Day program involves many individuals who also participate in the campus tours, we recommend that you schedule a tour of the UNMC campus for your students on a different day.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact the Career Day coordinators, at 402-559-8106 Monday through Friday, 8:00 am - 4:30 pm. E-mail us with questions anytime at
