partner organizations

The Lincoln Family Medicine Residency Program has partnerships with these exceptional healthcare organizations.


University of nebraska medical center

From our residency's origins in the early 1970s, we have enjoyed a strong, collaborative relationship with the University of Nebraska Medical Center. UNMC is Nebraska's only public academic health science center.  Working with them, Lincoln Medical Education Partnership has grown its residency from classes of six residents handling approximately 21,000 patient visits annually to its current class size of eight residents providing 30,000 annual patient visits. 

Today, more than 3,000 students attend UNMC. Nearly half of Nebraska's physicians, dental professionals,  pharmacists, bachelor-prepared nurses and allied health professionals have graduated from UNMC. 

UNMC is recognized nationally and internationally as a leader in patient care, research and education and holds accreditation from the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. Its mission-to improve thehealth of Nebraska through premier educational programs, innovative research, the highest quality patient care and outreach to underserved populations-meshes well with the goals of Lincoln Medical Education Partnership.

The reciprocal support Lincoln Family Medicine Program and UNMC demonstrate toward one another is a long-standing tradition. In 1976, UNMC assisted Lincoln Medical Education Partnership in obtaining legislative support for our residency program, which remains in place today. LMEP maintains an open relationship with UNMC Chancellor Dr. Jeffrey Gould. This mutually supportive approach contributes to our success in training family medicine physicians to provide the finest health care for citizens throughout the state and Great Plains.
