Sports Medicine & Cast Clinics:

The EBC/UNMC FMR program includes a Fellowship-trained sports medicine physician on staff full time at EBC. This staff also functions as team physician at Univ. of Nebraska-Omaha and as such we have the unique opportunity to allow residents to participate in sporting event and training room coverage for NCAA Division I/II athletics. These include hockey, football, wrestling as well as all team pre-participation exams. The FMR clinic conducts weekly sports medicine clinics which provide residents the opportunity for 1-on-1 training during their orthopedics rotation. Our cast and fracture management clinic involves direct management of all fracture cases by FMR residents, staffed by sports medicine physician with all cases presented to orthopedics staff for review.

FMR Continuity Clinic:

FMR continuity clinic schedules are rotation dependent. Typically a PGY-I will have 1-2 half-days per week with initially 3-4 patients per half-day, increased to 6-8 patients per half-day in second half of year. PGY-II and –III’s are in clinic 2-4 half-days per week with 8-12 patients per half-day. During resident clinics, each resident will have dedicated/blocked time for precepting with staff. In addition, EBC employs unique and extraordinarily effective methods of regular one-on-one precepting during which a staff follows a resident during his/her clinic session, providing the opportunity for direct observation, feedback and teaching. In addition, we employ the reverse process whereby residents in their PG-2 year follow a senior staff during their clinic to observe and enhance their clinic management skills.

FMR Osteopathic Manipulation (OMT) Clinic:

FMR operates an OMT clinic, precepted by our DO and OMT credentialed MD staff for DO residents and medical students. Here they hone and advance their skills in OMT including HVLA with dedicated OMT tables. In addition, Offutt’s FMR is unique in that we offer a dedicated curriculum to train allopathic physicians in the basic skills of OMT so that upon graduation, MD residents can be credentialed in osteopathic manipulation.
