It is that time…time to take the next step in your career and decide on postgraduate residency training.

Consider this your opportunity to take note of the program worthy of your attention. The UNMC/Kearney Rural Training Track is a rural component of the Family Medicine Residency Program of the University of Nebraska Medical Center.

The importance of family medicine is well recognized in a state as diverse geographically and socially as Nebraska. Our program receives strong support from the legislature, communities and their hospitals.

Here you will find excellent facilities, quality patients, a competitive salary and benefits package, a faculty which mixes youth and experience, all in a setting which is both dynamic and family-oriented.

Most importantly, we believe we offer you a unique blend of university- and community-based training that will provide you with the best of both worlds.

Residents in Kearney will complete their rotations at CHI Health Good Samaritan, a 267-bed facility, which serves a population of 340,000 located across central Nebraska and northern Kansas. The largest hospital outside of the Omaha and Lincoln area, CHI Health Good Samaritan offers medical and surgical services typically found only in metropolitan areas, providing residents a comprehensive, hands-on learning experience that will benefit them wherever they may practice in the future. CHI Health Good Samaritan sees nearly 10,000 inpatient admissions a year, and in 2012, expanded the hospital to include new intensive care and Progressive Care medical/surgical floors, new operating rooms, and an expanded heart center. 

You can read more about the Kearney Family Practice Residency Experience on the CHI Health Good Samaritan website.

Family Practice Associates serves as the resident ambulatory continuity clinic. Several graduates of the rural residency program have gone on to practice at Family Practice Associates.
