Safe Space Training

Graphic with the text "Safe Space Training with the UNMC Gender & Sexuality Resource Center"

Safe Space training is available for any UNMC or Nebraska Medicine student, faculty, or staff member who would like to be trained and identify as an ally to lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans spectrum, queer spectrum, intersex, asexual, gender spectrum, Two-Spirit, and/or sexuality spectrum (LGBTQ+) students, faculty, staff, and patients.

Safe Space training at UNMC is a two-hour group training that takes place virtually in real time. Mini trainings are condensed and cover essential information, but they are less interactive. Please see the center's profile on ENGAGE (UNMC) or log in to Apollo (Nebraska Medicine) to see currently scheduled trainings and sign up.

If you would like to schedule a Safe Space training for your group, please contact Catherine Medici-Thiemann. These trainings can be in person or online and can be customized.


Eligible participants can receive 2.0 Nursing Contact Hours.

Nebraska Medicine is approved as a provider of nursing continuing professional development by the Midwest Multistate Division, an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation
