Building Healthy Homes with Habitat for Humanity

For nearly a decade, our member physicians, residents, medical students and clinic staff have collaborated on a two-day home building event to provide health homes for Habitat for Humanity families.  No experience necessary – tasks for all skill levels.  Volunteers may select a single 3-hour shift or up to the full two days.  Volunteers must be at least 16 years old.

Community Internship Program

The Community Internship Program was established by the Metro Omaha Medical Society in 1992 to foster communication and understanding between community and business leaders and the medical community.

Interns are provided the unique opportunity to shadow physicians, witness all aspects of care including patient examinations and procedures, consultations and even behind the scenes – including a variety of practice environments.  The program culminates with a dinner where interns and physicians share their experiences.

Past interns have included lawmakers, members of the media, community leaders and business representatives who work closely with physicians.

Providing Care to the Indigent/Low Income

Hope Medical Outreach Coalition coordinates the staffing of four clinics that provide health care to the indigent and low income population. Health care providers volunteer at these clinics or see patients in their own offices who otherwise wouldn’t receive care.  The Metro Omaha Medical Society provides assistance to Hope Medical Outreach Coalition in their ongoing efforts to identify potential physicians volunteers in those specialties with the greatest need.
