Here's What Makes UNE Different
Interprofessional education teaches you to lead in team-based care.

Diverse learning opportunities give you career flexibility.
Global travel courses. Multiple rotations at workplaces in downtown Portland, in nearby communities, and throughout rural Maine. Research with faculty. You experience a wide range of learning environments.
A cutting-edge simulation lab helps prepare you for clinical care.
UNE’s Sim Lab is an authentic hospital environment with state-of-the-art robotic patient simulators. Here, you gain real-life clinical experience without the real-life risk. Watch a Sim Lab video.
Graduate success means we're a strong return on investment.
