International Observership Program in Neurology

UNMC Campus Walkway Shot

Thank you for your interest in our observership program.
Update: We have filled all of our spots until January 2025. 

The UNMC Department of Neurological Sciences International Observership Program in Neurology builds on UNMC’s mission to educate future leaders in healthcare. This program offers physicians from around the world the opportunity to observe our physicians and residents in practice. 

The Department of Neurological Sciences invites individuals with a clear commitment to a career in neurology to apply for a clinical observership of up to one calendar month. 

Accepted participants are responsible for securing their own visa, transport, travel medical insurance and housing. Program fees are $1,500 for a one-month observership and are prepaid upon acceptance.

Accepted participants will be able to observe patient care provided by attendings and residents, and will participate in discussions, patient-oriented conferences and other didactic sessions. Observers will not be involved in direct patient care.

To apply for the Observership, please review the Overview and complete the online application. Once your initial application has been reviewed, if approved, we will notify you to submit the items listed in the checklist portion of the overview. If you have any questions, please email us at:  unmcneuroobserver@unmc.edu.
