Welcome. We are called the House Officers’ Association Alliance (HOAA). Our group exists to provide support and friendship to the spouses and families of UNMC medical students, residents and fellows. We also partner with spouses and families of Creighton University medical students, residents and fellows to provide broadened support to the medical community as a whole.
We understand that these years of continued medical training can be challenging, but with a good support network they can also be very rewarding. We are here to help make this a time to enjoy and flourish rather than merely survive.
HOAA sponsors several events and special-interest groups for the partners, spouses, and children of house officers throughout the year. These include a monthly event, book club, bible study, young professional happy hour, children’s playgroup, and volunteer opportunities, among others. We invite you to let us be your family away from family, your friends in a new place, and your support system. We all understand what you are going through and are here for mutual support.
We hope that you will take advantage of all that HOAA has to offer. You can find out more about our membership here. Please note that this is an organization for spouses and significant others of medical students, residents, and fellows not the residents. Annual dues are $25 for medical students, $30 for medical students plus playgroup, $40 for member only, and $50.00 if you also participate in playgroup. These dues pay for themselves in just a few events.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us with questions about our organization, life in Omaha, the training years, or any other questions you may have. We wish you the very best in your upcoming years here and we look forward to meeting you. Please find us on Facebook as HOAA.
