The House Staff Council is the self-governing body and representative body of the residents of Creighton Medical School of Medicine Residency Training Programs located at CHI Bergan Mercy.
The mission of the House Staff Council shall be to represent the House Staff of Creighton University to develop, promote and advocate for medical education and patient centered care in the community.
We have representatives elected for the purpose of serving on the GMEC & it’s subcommittees and in doing so are able to provide input into policies on patient care, the community, and decisions affecting the house staff such as the efficient use of house staff time, and salary and benefit planning. In recent years, the Council has addressed house staff health care issues; worked with the administration on work hours, supervision, and participated in the establishment of a House Staff Relief Fund to support house staff educational initiatives. We are also involved in effecting quality of life improvements such as meal cards. The Council also donates to various charities in the Omaha Metro area.
In addition, the Council hosts social events to bring together residents from all departments. The House Staff Relief Fund provides financial support to fellow house officers who suffer from catastrophic or unforeseen major expense.
To be effective, the House Staff Council needs the participation and assistance of all members of the house staff. Each department has at least one elected representatives on the House Staff Council unless they have more than 10 members in which case they’d have at least two. Each department meets the last Wednesday of each month. House staff interested in serving on the Council should or anyone with suggestions and comments can feel free to contact the officers of the HSC directly or the president at HouseStaffCouncil [at] creighton [dot] edu.

All departments are required to name at least two representatives to the House Staff Council at the beginning of the academic year, but all residents are encouraged to attend meetings to provide feedback to the administration as well as to learn about policy and procedure changes being implemented.
