EM Year 1:

Resident 1

The month of July is dedicated to Intern Orientation. Emergency Medicine interns will spend the month of July in lectures; cadaver and simulation labs; refresher on splinting, suturing, and learning the basics of Point of Care Emergency Medicine Ultrasound; BLS, ACLS, PALS and ATLS. Interns will work some shifts in the ED to familiarize themselves with the department and have plenty of time to learn the city, unpack and get to know their fellow Residents.

First year Residents will spend five months assigned to the Emergency Department here at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, and one month in the Pediatric Emergency Department at Children's Nebraska here in Omaha. Our ED-based Orthopedics rotation allows the Interns to see orthopedic-related complaints. Our ultrasound faculty and fellows work one-on-one with the Interns during their Ultrasound rotation. The remaining rotations help provide the procedural and medical knowledge foundation needed to succeed when advancing to the PGY2 year


EM Year 2:

Resident 2

The PGY2 year is a very busy and exciting year! The EM Residents spend nine months in an ED. This includes seven months in the UNMC ED, one month at Bellevue Medical Center for a community base experience, and one month at one of the rural sites. Rural site choices include Fremont, Hastings, North Platte, or Scottsbluff. The second year Residents also participate in a one month split rotation; two weeks of Pediatric Anesthesia at Children's Nebraska, and two weeks at the Nebraska Regional Poison Center. Critical Care months in the Adult and Pediatric ICUs help prepare Residents for an expanded role caring for the critically ill in the ED.


EM Year 3:

Resident 3

The final year of the residency is spent mainly honing skills in the ED at UNMC for eight months, and strengthening clinical practice with one month at a rural site. A SICU rotation places the Residents in a supervisory role on the trauma team, and an elective month allows the resident to focus on their learning in a chosen area of interest. The residents round out their year with a month in the pediatric ED to fine-tune their pediatric practice.
