Interview Experience
All applicants are invited to a dinner prior to their interview with the residents at local restaurants and are free to ask questions on a more casual setting. Day of interview schedule consists of solo and group interviews with select faculty and residents. Noon lunch consists of a group lunch where all residents and faculty are invited to meet applicants in a meet and greet setting.

You must apply through Electronic Residency Application Services (ERAS). All appointments are made through the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) and applicants must register through the website. Interviews are by invitation only and based on academic performance, United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) and/or COMLEX-USA scores, and letters of recommendation.

Applicants should schedule USMLE Step 1, Step 2 CK, and Step 2 CS (or equivalent COMLEX exams) and release their scores to ensure that the program can view them by mid-February to be considered for placement on the rank order list.

Program Eligibility
Current senior or graduate of an LCME-approved medical school (or osteopathic equivalent) or an international graduate with a valid ECFMG certificate and valid visa or permanent resident status are eligible to apply. All appointments for residency are subject to ability to obtain unrestricted Oklahoma medical license. 

Osteopathic Physicians
We welcome applications from Osteopathic graduates. Through the years, many DO's have completed their residency training at OU in Oklahoma City. Please see our general FAQ for more information. Below are some common FAQs:

Do I have to go through the AMA match?
Yes. You cannot get in through the AOA match. The match is a contractual agreement. You need to be very sure this is what you want to do.

Is this a DO friendly program? 
Yes. In a program with 12 residents each year, there is room for physicians with all interests. We have a good mixture of DO and MD faculty and residents. We are happy to offer DO's the opportunity to continue their postgraduate training at OU. 

Do I have to do an AOA internship prior to entering this residency?
No. Our internship is a 12 month rotating internship which will qualify you for state licensure. 

Does this program accept COMLEX?
Yes. We will accept your COMLEX scores. There is no requirement to take the USMLE.

Can a DO who has completed an AOA internship apply for a 2nd year residency position?
Yes, if there is a open position. Contact the program coordinator for details.

How do I apply for a position?
We only accept applications through ERAS. 

Can I still do OMT if I train in your program?
Yes. There are no restrictions on OMT practice based on AOA certification. There are many physicians certified by the American Board of Family Practice that practice OMT.

Can I become Board Certified if I train here?
Yes. Upon completion of the residency program, you will be eligible to be certified in Family Practice by the American Board of Family Practice.
