Advocacy
Fontenelle Clinic BLMStaff at Fontenelle Clinic showing support for Black Lives Matter

At the UNMC Med-Peds program, we believe that advocacy is an important part of medical education.  We encourage our residents to not only advocate for their patients on a national level but also on a day to day basis in direct patient care.  As physicians, we have a unique role in the lives of our patients and often are meeting them during the most vulnerable times of their lives.  With that comes a responsibility to protect, provide and support the patients that we serve.   

Advocacy opportunities include:
