Innovations

UNMC’s mission is to lead the world in transforming lives to create a healthy future for all individuals and communities through premier educational programs, innovative research and extraordinary patient care.

The Training the Physicians of Tomorrow curriculum of the College of Medicine advances this mission by taking bold steps to provide students a learning environment that utilizes innovative teaching and learning techniques to go along with world class educational facilities and clinical training opportunities at our Nebraska Medicine, our affiliated health system. 

A prime example of this commitment is the world-leading Global Center for Advanced Interprofessional Learning, a cutting-edge training facility where UNMC and Nebraska Medicine students, faculty and staff will employ advanced learning technologies, including virtual reality and advanced simulation to efficiently learn and demonstrate key competencies in an interprofessional fashion.  As part of the iEXCEL initiative, this $102 million facility is slated for completion in 2018.
