Clinic operations are overseen by student and faculty advisory committees and providers.

Our Beginnings 

The SHARING Clinic was opened in 1997 with the goal of providing primary health care to underprivileged populations in the Omaha area. The clinic was founded by a group of medical and nursing students under the guidance of Jim Medder, a family physician, and Kathryn Fiandt, a nurse practitioner.  

The SHARING Clinics now are made up of four entirely student-run clinics in the Omaha area. We also partner with a dental clinic in Lincoln. The clinics are staffed by student providers from each of the academic disciplines at UNMC. This truly multidisciplinary approach provides comprehensive care for patients and a wonderful learning environment for student providers. Faculty providers are present at all clinics to ensure that each patient is properly cared for.

Clinic operations are overseen by a Student Advisory Committee, which is composed of students from all of UNMC's academic programs. A Faculty Advisory Committee works to support the Student Advisory Committee. Students and faculty also serve on several sub-committees: Quality/Clinic Operations, Education, Fundraising, Research, and Youth Outreach.

Our Mission 

The UNMC SHARING clinics strive to enhance the well-being of the greater Omaha community by providing high-quality, low-cost health care and human services to those in need. In a multidisciplinary educational setting, the SHARING clinics empower patients and instill the values of service and compassion in UNMC students.
