University of Nebraska Medical Center

CAHP and the library debut new exhibit

UNMC has been educating allied health professionals since the early 1930s. In October 1972, the University of Nebraska Board of Regents officially created the School of Allied Health Professions. In 2015, it became the sixth college at UNMC. Today, UNMC’s College of Allied Health Professions (CAHP) offers 15 health profession education programs, two interprofessional master’s degree programs, and four degree-advancement programs, with an average annual enrollment of over 750 students. 

To commemorate the past 50 years of growth and achievement, CAHP and the McGoogan Health Sciences Library partnered to produce an exhibition within the Wigton Heritage Center. This panel exhibition highlights the present programs, past and present leadership, and future growth plans of the college. The exhibition is open on both the Omaha and University of Nebraska at Kearney (UNK) campuses. 

The physical exhibition at UNMC is located near the Bennett/Sorrell/Wittson Hall skywalks on Level 4 of Wittson Hall. The Kearney exhibition is in the Health Science Education Complex. Accompanying these physical installations is an online exhibition accessible to a global audience at https://wigton.unmc.edu/CAHP.
