Student Interest Groups

One of the unique aspects of UNMC Department of Dermatology is we attract a group of passionate students with diverse experiences and interests to add to the culture. We have student lead interest groups like our Dermatology Interest Group (DIGA), Skin Smart Campus or our new Sun Protection Outreach by Students (SPOTS) program and DIGA DEI Committee. These groups offer many interesting and fun opportunities to develop personal and professional leadership skills as well as interaction within the community. With generous partnership with the Women’s Dermatologic Society (WDS) medical students are able to educate various groups about sun damage and ways to prevent skin cancer while handing out sunscreen samples and sun exposure bracelets. These groups attend community events throughout Omaha and surrounding communities teaching classes and webinars at Girls, Inc., Open Door Mission, Women's Center for Advancement and College World Series to name a few.
