University of Nebraska Medical Center

Neurology Residency Program

Our program balances clinical training, a broad educational curriculum and career development. Graduates of the residency program are well-prepared to enter clinical practice or to continue training in subspecialty fellowship.

In this four-year categorical ACGME-certified program, residents rotate through three affiliated training facilities:

  • Nebraska Medicine, which is the primary teaching hospital of UNMC
  • Omaha Division of the Veterans Administration Medical Center
  • Children's Nebraska

Together, these tertiary care hospitals comprise the largest referral center in Nebraska and its neighboring states, providing residents with experience treating a diverse range of patients and disease states.

Program Goals:

Our goals are aligned with UNMC's ITEACH values: Innovation, Teamwork, Excellence, Accountability, Courage and Healing.

  • To graduate neurologists who are compassionate, clinically proficient, knowledgeable, and ready for independent practice.   
  • To recruit residents from diverse training backgrounds and interests who share a passion for neurology or neurology subspecialties. 
  • To encourage and model residents as medical educators for students with diverse backgrounds and neurology literacy.
  • To promote a culture of innovation and multidisciplinary team-work through participation in scientific research, medical education, patient safety and quality improvement activities. 
  • To provide a safe and nurturing clinical learning environment that values wellness, respect and compassion for patients, family, staff, trainees and peers.
