At UMA, care is the foundation of everything we do. We believe that the dedicated support team members provide allows our students to seek bright, fulfilling futures in healthcare.

Our students trust UMA team members to help them achieve their dreams. For some, it may seem impossible. That’s why we’re with them every step of the way with a host of resources to aid them along their journeys toward a healthcare career.

This support begins with caring for our team members. It’s then carried out to our students who can one day can show that same level of care to others.

We call this the Ripple Effect of Care, and it’s what has helped UMA support more than 75,000 alumni nationwide since 1994.

Our Culture

Enjoy caring for others? At UMA, care pays back.

We believe that care is the other half of education. It’s the part that allows our students to overcome obstacles and achieve their goals. Some may feel that healthcare is a calling. It’s up to us to help them answer it. That means supporting their journey and celebrating their success.

Community Involvement and Impact

What we call the Ripple Effect of Care is when we support someone so that they are better able and empowered to support others. At UMA, that ripple effect starts with care for our team members who, in turn, care for our students, graduates, and healthcare partners who then care for the health and well-being of others in communities nationwide.

Among the benefits UMA offers is Volunteering Time Off (VTO) — eight hours of paid time off that allows team members to volunteer for community causes of their choosing.

You can read more about UMA’s community involvement and culture of care in our 2021 Community Impact Report.

UMA’s 2021 Community Impact at a Glance:

  • 30 community partner organizations supported
