Tyler Brinkman, MD
VA Chief Resident

I was born and raised in Rochester, Minnesota.  I attended the University of Minnesota (Twin Cities) for undergrad and received a BS in biology with a leadership minor.  For medical school, I went to American University of the Caribbean in Saint Maarten. My first two years were in Saint Maarten, followed by two clinical years in Detroit, MI.  Getting back to the Midwest for residency was a priority -- the people really are that nice.  I did my residency training here at UNMC and could not have been happier with my training and the relationships I've built.  After chief year, I plan to pursue a career in traditional academic internal medicine. Building relationships with patients and learners is the foundation of my career.  Outside of  the hospital you can catch me golfing, at Big 10 sporting events, traveling, or enjoying dinner with friends.  I've loved exploring Omaha and all the things this city has to offer.
