Why UNMC? Because we use today’s technology to influence tomorrow’s science and health care. Because a renewed emphasis on interactive and competency-based education, spurred on by our groundbreaking iEXCEL initiative and the upcoming $102 million Global Center for Advanced Interprofessional Learning, builds upon our already nationally-ranked programs. Because you’re the type of person looking to make an impact on the world. And that’s what we do.


iEXCEL will revolutionize health professions education through hands-on learning in realistic but simulated environments with the goal of improving the outcomes of health care for the state of Nebraska.
