Curriculum

The chosen curriculum includes all requrements of the ACGME. The curriculum also reflects the local strength our program in Southwest Oklahoma. We continually monitor and assess the outcome of the curriculum and with both faculty and resident support, strive to make the curriculum releveant.

PGY-1

The first year curriculum affords our interns excellent experience. Our curriculum is "front-loaded" in that the intern year is the most demanding of time and has the most call. Interns also participate in one 1/2 day of clinic per week.
