Ellie Bacon

First-year resident, 2022-24

Why did you choose to come to UNMC?

Growing up in Nebraska, UNMC has always been the driving force of medical care in our state and to be able to join a group of people that are dedicated to the continuous improvement of patient treatment and care is something I wanted to be a part of. In addition, the medical physics faculty cares so much about their residents, not only academically, but personally as well. It truly is a great group to be a part of.
