Before UNMC created its own residency program, UNMC teamed with Creighton University. One of the unique features of the two-department residency program was being able to draw from the resources of these two academic partners. Fully accredited training were offered in General Psychiatry as well as Fellowships in Geriatric, Child & Adolescent, and Addictions Psychiatry.
The UNMC-Creighton program offered a balanced clinical and didactic curriculum emphasizing the integration of biological, psychological and social facets of patient care. Moreover, training was carried out in a full array of academic, public and private hospitals and clinic settings.
Residents had protected time to attend required educational activities including case conferences, journal clubs, Grand Rounds, and didactic courses. We encouraged residents to participate in extramural educational activities including financially supporting each resident’s attendance at one national conference.
