- Psychiatry Interest Group
Psychiatry Interest Group is a student-run group for those interested in the behavioral health field. All students are welcome to attend our annual Mentorship Dinner hosted in the spring, where they are to connect with faculty in an informal setting and are able to ask real questions and become better acquainted with the behavioral health field. In January, we host 'Mind your Mind,' a mental health awareness week full of activities ranging from free massages to stress reduction technique lunches. We also volunteer at SHARING and provide psychiatric services year round.

- Graduates and Professionals Representing Achievement Diversity and Service (GRADS)
GRADS (Graduates & Professionals Representing Achievement Diversity and Service) is a new student group on campus whose purpose is as an inclusive group of graduate and professional students that are committed to providing a supportive network, representative of diverse backgrounds reaching toward achievement, encouraging diversity, and providing service to the UNMC campus and Omaha community. Collectively we are working with students from every college to grow a foundation of support and academic structure for current and incoming students at UNMC. We have also begun to build a strong network with supportive faculty and staff, in order to foster mentorship that is specific to a student's area of study. In general, GRADS hopes to serve as a bridge to connect and support underrepresented students at UNMC that are often overlooked and not as welcomed/substantiated upon matriculation throughout their course of study or training.
