Clayton Oakley, DO

Ambulatory Chief Resident

Dr. Clayton Oakley

I was born in Bluefield, West Virginia, but grew up in Sioux City, Iowa. I went to the University of Iowa for undergrad and am a big Hawkeyes fan!!! There is a lot of fun banter each football season with all my friends who are Husker fans (I am definitely outnumbered here in Omaha)! I went to Kansas City University for medical school. I decided to come to UNMC for residency after I fell in love with the program on my interview day! I felt the strong sense of community the moment I first stepped on campus. Over the last three years, my co-residents became my best friends! We have had so much fun both in the hospital and around Omaha! I also know I received an excellent education during my time in residency. I became the Ambulatory Chief Resident because I have a passion for teaching, and I want to give back to a program that had such a positive impact on my life! After chief year, I plan on pursuing a Hematology/Oncology fellowship. In my free time, I love spending time with my friends and family! I am an avid golfer. I also love exploring Omaha by checking out new events and restaurants!
