Facilities and Resources

Being part of such a growing and innovative campus, we can offer our house officers with state-of-the-art facilities and resources. We have a modern gross room that incorporates high tech equipment and skilled technical staff. In our department alone, we have twenty-three primary research laboratories, lead ten shared resource cores across campus, and direct two University of Nebraska-designated research centers. In addition to the departmental library, the McGoogan Health Sciences Library on campus has over 175,000 books and 2,400 journals. These facilities and resources are available for all of our residents to provide them with a varied and extensive training experience.
