He also works in private practice seeing patients throughout the lifespan for mental health. Mr. Wilken is from Omaha and graduated from the same program he is now instructing here at UNMC. In addition to teaching and caring for his patients, Mr. Wilken hopes to be a business and organizational leader in addressing the mental health needs of Nebraskans. He has worked in a variety of settings in the treatment of both mental and physical health for patients of all ages. Before Mr. Wilken was a provider, he was a nurse in long-term care, infection control, gastroenterology, dialysis, and pediatric behavioral health.
