Why UNMC – Filling Healthcare Needs in Rural Nebraska

“There are so many needs in rural Nebraska and I felt really tied to that.”

Many UNMC students come from rural Nebraska and after they receive their education, they go back and serve in communities throughout the state. Nearly half of Nebraska’s physicians, dental professionals, pharmacists, bachelor-prepared nurses and allied health professionals have graduated from UNMC.

“I am often amazed at what the students are doing and how involved they are in their communities. UNMC has that genuine hospitality feel where they truly are dedicated to improving the lives of the communities and the state that we are in.”
