About Our Program
Our program stresses both academics and clinical pediatrics. We are ACGME accredited, receiving a full 5 year accreditation on our most recent site review, and our program is competency based. We offer both a Pediatric Residency and an Internal Medicine/Pediatric Residency. We take 17 new pediatric residents and 3 medicine-pediatrics residents each year.
Hospital Information The Children's Hospital is located in downtown Oklahoma City, and is the only full-service, free-standing pediatric health care facility as well as the only level I pediatric trauma center in the state. The 258 bed inpatient facility averages 11,000 admissions, and ambulatory facilities see more than 80,000 children in outpatient clinics, and averages 35,000 visits to the Pediatric Emergency Department annually.
The faculty in the Department of Pediatrics is a very diverse one, spanning 14 sections and approximately 127 physicians. Faculty members are committed to house staff education and are very approchable; the real strength of the program is in the people. For information about residency see our residency brochure located on the left hand side of this webpage. If you are interested in gaining an excellent pediatric education in a friendly, engaging setting, we invite you to consider the Pediatric Residency Program at The Children's Hospital at OU Medical Center.
