Student Support

Student Support

The UNMC College of Medicine remains focused on its primary mission to provide outstanding education and training to medical students. Considering that more than half of all Nebraska physicians receive their training at the medical center, ensuring the college continues to provide students with a top-ranked education is an important priority for both the university and the state.  A top priority for the College of Medicine is to increase scholarship funds available to students.  In addition, private funds are needed to support and maintain technology and curriculum such as that used in simulation laboratories, classrooms, the clinical skills center and McGoogan Library.
