Below Dr. Paulman shares a memory from his time at UNMC.

While I was attending a state meeting of our specialty society, I had a chance to speak to one of our residency graduates who is practicing very successfully in a rural underserved community in Nebraska.

He told me that I had been a positive influence during his medical school and residency regarding his choosing an underserved rural community for practice and staying there.

It felt very good to know that my actions had a positive influence on someone I admired greatly for his work serving the citizens of Nebraska.

Aside from Dr. Paulman, others with 40 and 30 years of service at UNMC who will be honored at the annual faculty meeting include:
