Our first intern class will begin in July 2020 and will be recruited through ERAS.
The new UNMC College of Medicine Psychiatry Residency Program offers 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. We have decades of experience in psychiatry residency training with Creighton University.
There will be four pillars (Wellness, Interprofessional, Subspecialty Clinical Experiences, and Experiential Learning in Psychotherapy) that will distinguish our program. Together, these pillars form our educational philosophy which we refer to as WISE. Our WISE residents will not only have excellent clinical and didactic training, but will also be able to work effectively in teams and diverse healthcare systems while managing personal well-being.
