What to do after you have completed your master's or doctorate:
- Master's students have the option of going into the field they have been desiring or getting a doctorate.
- Doctorate students will need to decide if they would like to become a post-doctoral researcher, or associate professor. Doctorate graduates can also go into the private sector.

The University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) IRB was established to assure the protection of all human subjects in research projects conducted by anyone on the premises of UNMC, Nebraska Medicine, Nebraska Medicine - Bellevue, Children’s Hospital & Medical Center (CH&MC), and the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO). In addition, the IRB has oversight for all research that is conducted elsewhere by faculty, students, staff, or other representatives of these institutions.
