Family Medicine Residency Programs
The OSU Family Medicine Residency and OMECO Teaching Health Center Family Medicine Programs are both three-year post graduate medical programs and ACGME accredited with Osteopathic Recognition. The programs are designed to accommodate the individual learning needs of training physicians, and focus on comprehensive medical care with particular emphasis on the family unit, the ambulatory aspect of patient care, and the enhancement of clinical credentials in specific areas.
The OSU Family Medicine Residency is an 8-8-8 CMS funded program whose residents are employed by Oklahoma State University Medical Center and academically sponsored by OSU Center for Health Sciences. The OSU Health Care Center serves as the OSU Family Medicine continuity clinic.
The OMECO Family Medicine Teaching Health Center is a 5-5-5 HRSA federally funded program whose residents are employed by OSU Center for Health Sciences and focuses on training residents in community-based primary care settings particularly in rural and underserved areas. The OSU Eastgate Clinic and Morton Comprehensive Health both serve as the OMECO Family Medicine Teaching Health Center continuity clinics.
The residency programs have some unique strengths:
- The residents enjoy having their own inpatient hospital service where they care for patients on the general medical floors and in the ICU, supervised by Family Medicine faculty.
- The Women’s Health and Obstetrical experiences are primarily led by Family Medicine faculty. Three Family Medicine faculty perform obstetrical deliveries, two of which are fellowship trained in operative obstetrics.
- Residents have the benefit of performing osteopathic manipulation in their continuity clinic and in the hospital.
