Community Engagement

UNMC is the only public academic health science center in the state, so we embrace the responsibility to reach out across Nebraska and to the world beyond.

Whether it is patient care, education or research-related, UNMC extends its health care experts to the community through pediatric behavioral health clinics, Science Cafes, cancer screenings, distance education and more.

UNMC serves as a national and international resource through its Global Center for Health Security, its partnership in the National Emerging Special Pathogens Training and Education Center, and the Dr. Edwin & Dorothy Balbach Davis Global Center for Advanced Interprofessional Learning.

UNMC is a source people can trust. With programs like the Consumer Health Information Resource Service, all Nebraska residents have free access – pending or following a diagnosis -- to the latest medical information through UNMC’s Leon S. McGoogan Health Sciences Library.

Connecting With Community

Our Office of Community Engagement is building relationships and collaborations between our faculty, staff and students and the communities we serve.

Access for all is a priority at UNMC. With health disparities a statewide concern, we take a proactive approach to recruit students and residents to practice in rural, underserved areas through rural pathway programs and the Residency Rural Training Track.

UNMC fully supports any and all programs that lead to affordable and quality health care, education, information, resources and services for everyone.
