Resident wellbeing is a primary reason our residents choose to train at UNMC! We are proud of a wellness curriculum that is second to none amongst anesthesiology residency programs.

The events sponsored by the residency program are resident-planned and resident-led. Each class has one or two “Wellness Champions” who lead the way with our wellness initiatives. These initiatives follow our “8 Domains” curriculum, which encourages activities that promote wellbeing in the social, physical, emotional, occupational, spiritual, environmental, intellectual, and financial domains.

Some other highlights that set us apart:
