About the Department

Michael Sitorius, MD

The Department of Family Medicine has celebrated over 50 years of success within the College of Medicine.  Our long-standing mission has been to educate and train a high quality workforce to meet the needs of the state, region and country.  To achieve that mission we embrace the University of Nebraska Medical center’s goals of providing premier educational programs, outstanding patient care and innovative research.  We enjoy strong and ongoing support from the University, state and our clinical partner Nebraska Medicine.

The foundation of our success begins with an outstanding faculty. The department’s faculty represent a highly diverse group in terms of experience, gender, background, interest and expertise, yet all are committed to excellence.  Our faculty provide the full spectrum of family medicine practice including inpatient, ambulatory, obstetric, sports medicine, procedural, and nursing home care.   The settings for this care a represented by community hospitals and clinics, a tertiary care center, community health centers, military facilities and critical access rural health systems.  This wide variety of training experiences provide the opportunity for our students and residents to gain the knowledge and skills to become highly competent graduates.

The Department continually looks for new and innovative ways to improve education and deliver high value care for our patients.  I welcome you to visit the pages of this web site to learn about the great opportunities in the Department of Family Medicine at the University of Nebraska Medical Center.
