Resident Satisfaction and Program Goals
At Creighton’s Internal Medicine Residency Program, your wellness matters, too. The program enjoys a unique sense of community among a diverse group of residents who truly care for one another.
It also has compassionate faculty mentors who enjoy teaching and are authentically invested in residents’ training and well-being.
“I am so thankful for the well-rounded training I have received from Creighton faculty for both my Internal Medicine residency and Pulmonary & Critical Care fellowship training. All the staff at Creighton truly embody Cura Personalis. Under their mentorship, I feel equipped to provide holistic compassionate care for my patients in the ICU and outpatient pulmonary clinic: truly caring for their mind, body, and soul.”
- Zach Wittenberg, PCCM Resident
Academic Half Days
Our resident-led Education Committee has implemented Academic Half Days as a project: “A New Dawn in the Internal Medicine Education Curriculum—A project by the residents, with the residents, for the residents.” The transition to this methodology eliminated the need for daily didactic lectures and gives residents protected learning time.
Our Academic Half Day is Wednesday afternoons following grand rounds. Academic Half Day curriculum includes our Core Curriculum, chief-resident-led small group sessions, interactive sessions with faculty, Journal Club, research, QI/PS and health care.
