Joel BessmerJoel Bessmer
Assistant Professor/Associate Director of Internal Medicine Education
College of Medicine
Despite a busy clinical schedule, Joel remains devoted to student and resident education. He is the type of physician that all house officers and students aspire to be. He is compassionate and caring, and takes time to build a relationship with every patient and family. His medical knowledge is extensive, but he is always able to relate information to patients in an understandable and non-intimidating manner. Many are amazed at the amount of time he devotes to each individual patient. His personal reputation helps elevate UNMC’s image in the community. With him today are his wife, Kathy; his colleagues, Dr. Tom Tape and Dr. James O’Dell; and the interim chair of internal medicine, Dr. Debra Romberger. Please join me in thanking Joel Bessmer [Bess-mer] for his outstanding work.
