As the only public academic health science center in the state, UNMC embraces the responsibility to reach out to all Nebraskans.
Whether it is patient care, education or research-related, UNMC extends its health care experts to the community through pediatric behavioral health clinics, Science Cafes, cancer screenings, distance education and more.
UNMC serves as a national and international resource through its Global Center for Health Security, its partnership in the National Ebola Training and Education Center, and the National Center for Health Security& Biopreparedness Training Center, to be housed in the Dr. Edwin & Dorothy Balbach Davis Global Center for Advanced Interprofessional Learning.
UNMC strives to be a source people can trust. With programs like CHIRS, (Consumer Health Information Resource Service) all Nebraska residents have free access – pending or following a diagnosis -- to the latest medical information through UNMC’s McGoogan Library of Medicine.
Access for all is a priority at UNMC. With health disparities a statewide concern, UNMC takes a proactive approach to recruit students and residents to practice in rural, underserved areas through the Rural Health Opportunities Program (RHOP) and the Residency Rural Training Track.
UNMC fully supports any and all programs that lead to affordable and quality health care, education, information, resources and services for everyone.
