Welcome to Nebraska 2.0!

After two years of extensive planning with local and national experts, the UNMC Department of Psychiatry will again have an independent residency program. For the past 30 years, UNMC combined with Creighton University to form the Creighton-Nebraska training program. In July 2020, we welcomed our first four interns.

Our new program offers rigorous training that blends academic excellence and front-line clinical experience. Our clinical partner, Nebraska Medicine, is a well-established academic health system in the region, consisting of 809 licensed beds at its two hospitals, more than 1,000 physicians, and 40 specialty and primary care clinics in Omaha and surrounding areas. Recent major additions to the main campus include the Lauritzen Outpatient Center, the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center, and the Davis Global Center for Advanced Interprofessional Learning. The residency leadership and Department of Psychiatry are based at the extensively renovated Poynter Hall, the first building of the University of Nebraska College of Medicine which opened in 1913.

The UNMC program has four areas of emphasis or “pillars” (Wellness, Interprofessional, Subspecialty Clinical Experiences, and Experiential Learning in Psychotherapy) that describe our educational philosophy, also known as WISE. Our WISE residents will not only have excellent clinical training and didactics, but will also be able to work effectively in teams and diverse healthcare systems while managing personal well-being. 

Please learn more about us through this web site and our social media account (Twitter @UNMCPsychiatry.) Omaha and the department will have much to offer prospective residents.
