Application Process
Selection Process for General Surgery Candidates for positions in the residency program are selected on the basis of:

  • Medical school grades

  • USMLE board scores

  • Letters of recommendation

  • Interviews

All information available about each candidate is reviewed by each member of the faculty and a ranking is given. These rankings are consolidated to produce the final matching list. All first year appointments are made through the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP Code 158819). We attempt to select intellectually competent individuals who are highly motivated, sincerely committed and who possess personality characteristics and interpersonal skills which suggest that they will become capable humane surgeons.


Candidates for house staff positions in Surgery are interviewed on one of four days set aside for interviews each year. For ​​2018-2019 the days will be as follows:  

  • Monday, November 12. 2018
  • ​Monday, November 19, 2018
  • ​Monday, December ​10, 2018
  • ​Friday, January 11, 2019

Selection of candidates to be interviewed will be based on a review of their application form. Applications for residency are received through Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).
Any questions or comments can be answered by calling 405-271-6308 or emailing the residency coordinator SuAnn White

The interview session will consist of an opening session which reviews the training program in general terms. Each candidate will then be interviewed by at least two faculty members and will be conducted on a tour of the facilities by members of the house staff and will have the opportunity to talk with them about the program. Lunch will be provided for applicants. Spouse or fiancee may accompany the candidate and will be invited to the luncheon. The interview process does not involve formal "testing."
