Chief Residentís Message

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. We hope it will be helpful as you make one of the most important decisions of your career. Our main objective at Creighton/UNMC is to provide a solid foundation on which to build as you develop your knowledge and pursue success in the field of Psychiatry.

Psychiatry is a rapidly advancing field that offers great opportunities, and the Creighton-Ne-braska Psychiatry Residency Program makes an excellent choice. As this is a joint residency program, our residents get the best that Creighton and UNMC have to offer. We work at a variety of locations which provides an opportunity to become proficient in multiple electronic health records, see how various hospitals run and ultimately decide what environment you will thrive in once residency is completed.

This is an exciting time in our program. Last year, our residency program won the Mind Games competition at the American Psychiatric Association Annual Meeting. One of the 3 residents on that team stayed on as faculty, and his excitement for teaching has pushed our didactics to a new level. Improvement in didactics and other educational experiences is the primary concern for our administration. Our staff attend a variety of lectures for faculty development and helping them be more effective educators.

We have multiple sub-specialists in areas including Geriatric Psychiatry, Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Forensic Psychiatry, and Psychosomatic Psychiatry. Other faculty have specialized practices in areas such as womenís health, integrated care, community psychiatry, ADHD, psychodynamic psychotherapy, telemedicine, addiction medicine, and research. With such diverse faculty and training locations, residents are able to find mentors and excel in the pursuit of their own unique interests.

During my time at Creighton/UNMC, I have found life-long friends and mentors, and developed confidence in my clinical skills and psychiatric knowledge. The administration and leadership are receptive to feedback, and as a result, the program continues to grow stronger. This is an exciting time for both our field of medicine and training program. We hope you choose to visit and see for yourself all we have to offer you. Best of luck in your future!
