House Officers

Residency Council

The UNMC Internal Medicine Residency Council was founded in 2013 in order to better ensure that the needs of our residents are heard, explored, and addressed.  Made up of three, peer-elected house officers from each residency class, the council meets monthly to discuss resident concerns and opportunities for program improvement.  Suggested changes are then relayed to residency program leadership via a “fast-tracked” approach to ensure we are meeting the needs of our residents as quickly and efficiently as possible. The residency council also oversees a residency wellness fund used to plan activities and/or purchase items that support the wellness of our residents.

Overall, the residency council adds to a culture of open dialogue, support, and positivity within our residency program.  We are proud of our house officer representatives and the work they do for one another and for our program as a whole!
