Along with rigorous course work, students can participate in student groups designed to provide affinity around topics like pharmacy, global health or holistic health. In addition, UNMC has chapters of several nationally recognized organizations which support students interested in multicultural and women's health issues.
The UNMC chapter of the American Medical Student Association is one of the largest in the country, and is one of the most influential. AMSA represents student views concerning health care delivery and all current medical issues. .
The American Medical Women's Association is designed to support women medical students and physicians. Through peer groups, discussions and outreach, members encourage each other in the study and pursuit of medical careers.
The UNMC Pride Alliance aims to educate future health care providers in the specific health care needs of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) patients, promote the health and acceptance of LGBT providers and to offer a safe atmosphere while respecting the needs of privacy and confidentiality.
