To Our Prospective Residents


I am pleased of your interest in our training programs.  You are at a significant juncture of your medical education in which you must weigh the quality of the training program that will shape and influence your practice of medicine.  This is a very difficult decision and one that we take very seriously. 


Our training programs are designed to meet the needs of our residents, preparing them as clinicians, educators and scientists.  The training programs offer a varied curriculum, an excellent patient base, dedicated educators, and excellent facilities. 


Our goal is to create an academic learning environment where our residents gain first-hand knowledge of primary and tertiary care preparing them to either become primary care physicians or sub-specialists.  This is accomplished with an outstanding blend of didactic and patient-based learning. 


Independent of your long-term career plans, I invite you to take a closer look at our programs, meet our Residency Directors, faculty and residents.  I hope that you will agree that OU is a spectacular place to train.
