Program Description
The UNMC Neurology Residency Program is a 4 year categorical ACGME certified program  which 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.

The residency program's home institution is the University of Nebraska Medical Center, which is also home to a medical school.  Residents have the opportunity to rotate through three affiliated training facilities - Nebraska Medicine, which is the primary teaching hospital of UNMC, the Omaha Division of the Veterans Administration Medical Center and Children's Hospital & Medical Center.  Together, these tertiary care hospitals comprise the largest referral center in Nebraska and its neighboring states, providing residents experience with a very diverse range of patients and disease states.

The Department of Neurological Sciences is comprised of clinicians, scientists, and educators who have the vision, ability, and dedication to advance neural health across the lifespan.  This gives our residents the opportunity to work with and learn from leaders in patient care, research, education, administration, and outreach, who deliver innovative care to patients with the most severe and complex neurologic disorders.

Our program encourages wellness and resiliency through formal training and department-sponsored social activities.  Our program's vision is to enhance neurologic care for Nebraska and to graduate outstanding neurologists who will be leaders in research, quality improvement, outreach, and medical education.  The program's goals are aligned with the ITEACH values of our institution - Innovation, Teamwork, Excellence, Accountability, Courage, and Healing.
