Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery Residency

Our plastic and reconstructive surgery residencies are dedicated to providing comprehensive training designed to fulfill the requirements outlined in the program requirements for plastic surgery. We offer a three-year independent residency and a six-year integrated program.

In addition to our primary clinical partner, Nebraska Medicine, the program has partnerships with other Omaha area hospitals such as, Boys Town National Research Hospital, Children's Nebraska, Methodist Hospital and St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Lincoln, Nebraska. Each institution affiliated with the residency program contributes a different practice setting, research opportunity and a specific clinical focus with the overall mission of the education of the residents. Together they will afford the plastic surgery resident training in all aspects of the field of plastic and reconstructive surgery.
