Preparing the next generation of Ob/Gyn doctors


I am pleased you are reviewing our program as a possible site for residency training. Our institution pairs a world-renowned medical center and hospital that strives to provide the most innovative patient care, teaching and health care research in the nation.

The overall goal of our training program is to provide an educational program with sufficient longitudinal experience in the evaluation, diagnosis and management of gynecologic and obstetric conditions to result in the emergence of physicians with the ability for independent and competent practice of the specialty. This four year program has graduated responsibility with each year building on previous experience. Additional educational experiences with specific objectives allow for a broad based educational opportunity.

Our department currently has ten Generalists, three Maternal-Fetal Medicine, two Gynecology/Oncology faculty, six midwives, one urogynecologist, and three full-time research professors. In addition, there is reproductive medicine, urogynecology, breast surgery, and internal medicine faculty. All of these physicians are dedicated to the training of residents and students and they desire to pass their knowledge on to the next generation of health care professionals.

Our main hospital affiliate is the Nebraska Medical Center, which has two towers, University and Clarkson, with a total of 680 beds. Our other training sites are Methodist Hospital, the newly created Methodist Women’s Hosptial and Heartland Center for Reproductive Medicine.

The Metropolitan Omaha-area is growing at a rapid pace and is a wonderful city to live in.  So, please take the time to browse through our other web pages to learn more about us, to help you make the decision of a life time.
