Overview

The faculty provide inpatient and outpatient clinical services at Creighton University-Bergan Mercy Medical Center, Immanuel Medical Center, Lakeside Medical Center, Mercy Council Bluffs Medical Center, Midlands Medical Center and the Omaha VA Medical Center. In addition, the faculty travel to 10 different rural hospitals approximately 50 times each month. The general and interventional cardiology fellows, internal medicine residents and medical students interact with faculty in both inpatient and outpatient settings.

Inpatient and outpatient academic services are provided at Creighton University-Bergan Mercy Medical Center and the Omaha VA Medical Center.

The division hosts a bi-monthly journal club and provides regular didactics to the cardiology fellows, internal medicine and family medicine residents, lectures for the medical students, and participates in Grand Rounds.

The faculty and fellows regularly present abstracts and posters at regional, national and international academic and clinical society meetings. In recognition of their clinical excellence, dedication to education and scholarly activity, the Cardiology Division faculty and fellows have received many Department of Medicine and School of Medicine awards for outstanding performance and scholarly efforts.
