Creating a healthcare workforce pathway
UNMC has long been committed to educating and preparing the state's rural health workforce to ensure students are well-prepared to meet the unique health care needs of rural Nebraska. Through long-standing programs such as guaranteed admission pathway programs for rural residents to interprofessional student interest groups focused on rural health, UNMC is helping develop health care providers who will improve access to quality health care in rural communities all across Nebraska.
The Rural Health Opportunities Program (RHOP) and Kearney Health Opportunities Program (KHOP) are designed to address the health care needs of rural Nebraska. The health professions pathway programs recruit, educate and graduate leaders from Nebraska who are committed to returning to Nebraska's rural areas to practice health care.
