Pediatrics Residency Program


Thank you for your interest in the UNMC-CUMC-Children's Hospital & Medical Center Joint Pediatric Residency Training Program. Our residency program provides a truly unique training environment in a diverse, midwestern setting. Residents in our program enjoy access to all pediatric subspecialties at a rapidly growing, state-of-the-art, freestanding children’s hospital. This allows for an expansive and high-quality education that prepares residents for successful careers across the entire spectrum of pediatrics.

Our faculty are recognized both nationally and internationally for their high-quality and innovative teaching methods and scholarly endeavors. The academic mission of our program is uniquely supported by two nationally recognized universities in Creighton University and the University of Nebraska. As a result, our residents have the opportunity to educate students from two separate medical schools. Many of our residents are frequently recognized for their superb teaching skills. With such a strong academic foundation, our residents are uniquely positioned to pursue various educational, clinical, academic, and research endeavors during their residency training and beyond. A growing number of fellowship training programs further provides a wide breadth of additional training and career opportunities.

When considering these features jointly, our residency program affords a genuinely unique, diverse, and individualized experience that promotes a robust and educational training environment, thereby creating highly successful physicians in all areas of pediatrics.

Our residency training program is fully accredited.
