Volunteer Faculty Perks

The UNMC mission is to provide quality educational experiences for our students, residents, and faculty. The single most significant influence on a student’s career choice is often their opportunity to work in a clinical setting with committed and caring health care professionals. Volunteer faculty members are an integral part of this process and UNMC recognizes their importance. The impact preceptors can have on future health care workers is unrivaled.
