Exploring Medicine

If you are interested in getting a jumpstart on your future career and seeing the wide variety of options available throughout the healthcare field, Exploring Health & Medicine is designed for you!

You will take an introductory science course and Introduction to Health Professions course together as a community to work alongside one another, and have access to exclusive academic, career, and social experiences outside the classroom. These might include visits to the University of Nebraska Medical Center and other local facilities and educational activities with the cadaver lab on campus to gain further experience related to healthcare - often alongside your peers in the Exploring Nursing Learning Community. Also, you will receive guidance in preparing for applying to post-grad health programs and learn what a career in medicine might entail. 

You can visit the Explore Center website to learn about all the pre-health programs available at UNL.
