Program Highlights

The UNMC Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Rehabilitation is combined with Creighton University Medical School under the auspices of the Nebraska-Creighton Health Foundation. Located in metropolitan Omaha, our residency program provides an outstanding educational experience, a safe town with affordable living, and an enriched social environment.

The combined program is directed by Matthew Mormino, M.D., associate professor of orthopaedic surgery at UNMC. The program includes training in all the orthopaedic subspecialties:

  • Hand
  • Foot and ankle
  • Major joint reconstruction
  • Oncology
  • Pediatric orthopaedic surgery
  • Shoulder and elbow
  • Spine
  • Sports medicine
  • Trauma

Our orthopaedic residents are involved in daily patient care as well as important research activities during their intensive training. As part of The Nebraska Medical Center, the University Hospital is a Level I Trauma Center, and our orthopaedic surgery residents play an integral role on the hospital trauma team.

The program received full accreditation by the Residency Review Committee of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) in January 2009, with the next review coming in 2013. Recent changes have been added to the residency curriculum to address the six core competencies as outlined by the ACGME outcome project for Resident Education:

  • Patient care
  • Interpersonal and communication skills
  • Professionalism
  • Medical knowledge
  • Systems-based practice
  • Practice-based learning and improvement

Likewise, 80-hour work week restrictions have been met in our residents’ schedules. Overall, the addition of new attending staff and the changes to the curriculum improved an already excellent residency training program.

Of all the men and women who have completed their orthopaedic surgical training through the Nebraska program, more than half are now practicing in the state or the Midwest. The remaining physicians are practicing around the country and overseas. Doctors throughout the region regard UNMC as a source of continuing education where they can learn the latest techniques for diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of bone and joint diseases.
