The University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) and affiliated hospital Nebraska Medicine (NM), comprise the Medical Center campus which is located in central Omaha, Nebraska. UNMC, which is the sponsoring institution, is an academic health center with a full service clinical microbiology laboratory associated with the hospital. Also available on campus are Regional Pathology Services, our outreach laboratory, and the Nebraska Public Health Laboratory (NPHL). NPHL performs public health testing as a contracted service between UNMC and the State of Nebraska. Although a majority of the training will take place at the sponsoring institution, additional opportunities will also be available in the clinical microbiology laboratory at our affiliate, the Alegent/Creighton University Medical Center. This facility is geographically located within a short distance of the Medical Center campus.
