About the Department

image1

With 10 divisions, the Department of Internal Medicine constantly pursues all three aspects of the UNMC mission: clinical service, medical education and biomedical research.

More than 150 physicians and scientists comprise the internal medicine faculty. They are experienced clinicians, accomplished researchers, and talented educators. Our faculty is a metropolitan group of well-trained professionals who all understand the need to work as a team member to accomplish our overriding goal of enhancing the health of all Nebraskans.

About 135 physicians annually train in our renowned residency program. For more than 10 years, we've seen a 100 percent pass rate for the Internal Medicine Board and for good reason: the curriculum offers a strong foundation with well-defined objectives, 14 subspecialty electives, and a wide array of rotations, here at the medical center and elsewhere in the U.S., as well as in South Africa. 

Research is a vital part of department activities, with grants totaling more than $24 million annually. Our researchers are active and well-published - collectively, we publish more than 250 peer-reviewed journal articles a year.
