University of Nebraska Medical Center


When you join the Academy, you connect with one of the largest interprofessional groups on campus, affording you unique opportunities to connect with fellow educators.

The Academy is unique among other groups across the country in that we truly are comprised of an interprofessional group of educators who are dedicated to innovation and excellence in teaching.

There are currently four member categories:

  • Academy Members, who are current faculty, staff and clinical preceptors
  • Associate Members, who are student and resident learners
  • Affiliate Members, who are external faculty and staff
  • Emeritus Members, who are retired faculty and staff

The application process opens annually each Spring, with new members inducted in September at our New Member Induction Ceremony.
