The UNMC and Children’s affiliation aligns our two organizations in a way that allows a shared vision for the future of pediatric health care and ensures children have access to world-class clinical care, treatments influenced by cutting-edge research and a future generation of well-education and highly trained medical professionals. This leader will represent and collaborate with the Children’s and UNMC leadership for matters involving Pediatric Surgery at all campus sites.
