Family Medicine Residency

Program Description

The OSU Family Practice Residency Program features a formal curriculum that emphasizes the development of osteopathic family medicine competencies. Ambulatory care and comprehensive family medical services are stressed, and a substantial portion of the resident's time will be spent at the OSU College of Osteopathic Medicine Health Care Center learning ambulatory care by interacting with patients, their families and clinic staff.

The hospital portion of the training takes place at Oklahoma State University Medical Center. Each resident is also afforded the opportunity to extend his/her knowledge and skills to all areas of primary care through electives.
