Application Information  

We welcome applicants from a diverse set of backgrounds and life experiences. We are committed to building an inclusive community of trainees and faculty who foster diversity within our residency program. We look for candidates with excellent academic performance and a strong interest in general internal medicine and pediatrics as a stepping stone to an academic position, further subspecialty training, a hospitalist position, or private practice. 

The Internal Medicine - Pediatric Program offers 4 positions each year. Interviews are by invitation only and are based on the applicant's academic performance, USMLE scores, letters of recommendation, and other accomplishments as detailed in the ERAS application. Interviews are conducted between October and January. 

ERAS is the Electronic Residency Application Service from the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC).  The Department of Internal Medicine-Pediatrics requires applications be submitted through the ERAS. University of Nebraska Medical Center participates in the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP). 

We invite you to apply to our training track:


Application Checklist  

Before an invitation can be extended, we must have the following materials on file from ERAS:

  • ERAS Application
