Caring for the Mind

Welcome to the UNMC Psychiatry Website

The University of Nebraska Medical Center Department of Psychiatry has been at the forefront of psychiatric care of Nebraskans for decades and strives to fulfill excellence in clinical service, teaching, and research. Members of our clinician-educator faculty continue to be in the vanguard of both the study and treatment of mental illness across the lifespan, with experts in child, adult, and geriatric psychiatry at our three locations:  Poynter Hall (Click on the “Location map”), Home Instead Center for Successful Aging [HICSA] (Click on the “Location map”), and Village Point (Click on the “Location map”).

We provide psychiatry education at UNMC, and residency through post residency fellowships through the combined Creighton-Nebraska Residency Training Program with the Creighton University School of Medicine.

We also conduct innovative research in the assessment and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder and depression. As you browse our website, we invite you to contact us with any questions or if you would like to be part of our mission.
