The Emerging Professionals Program was founded in 2016 by a team of UNMC and Nebraska Medicine representatives. The program officially launched in the summer of 2017. The EPP is a joint effort between the two organizations with the goal of providing an avenue for emerging professionals to connect, engage, and grow. These three pillars are the foundation of the program.
Mission: The Emerging Professionals Program serves UNMC and Nebraska Medicine by providing a platform that empowers emerging professionals to connect, engage and grow through our shared organizational values.
Vision: The goal of the EPP is to foster ownership of our culture through supporting the development of Nebraska Medicine’s and UNMC’s colleagues and students by:
- Connecting emerging professionals with organizational leaders and peers, resources, community recognition and volunteer opportunities.
- Engaging emerging professionals through networking and EPP sponsored events
- Enabling growth while building long-lasting relationships
