Program Director Welcome

Welcome to the Oklahoma State University family, home of the Family Medicine Residency! We hope you find our website full of specific information about our residents, faculty, alumni and staff. All of the information about our curriculum, salary, benefits and training facilities can be found throughout this website. My hope is that you not only find the information needed but that you are able to see what makes our training environment at OSU such a wonderful place as you accomplish your goals and dreams of becoming a family physician.

 

Our academic sponsorship by Oklahoma State University, combined with our status as one of the largest training hospitals in the United States, means that our residents get the “best of both worlds.”  Our diverse and extremely talented faculty wear many hats: they teach at state and national meetings, are recognized leaders in the community and are passionate advocates for whole-person-based primary care.  All of our residents learn full-spectrum family medicine, which includes strong maternity care training, community medicine and tremendous experience in family medicine-based clinical care. At the same time, our Oklahoma State University connection gives our residents access to significant academic resources and medical student teaching opportunities right here in Tulsa, a haven of Southern comfort and cosmopolitan style in the expansive Oklahoma plains.

 

We recognize that there are a multitude of excellent family medicine training options in the country.  Why choose us?  One simple answer – the people. We are passionate about what we do and whom we serve.  When we ask residents, faculty and staff what they most like about our residency program, the answer is universally “the people” and the sense of belonging to a learning community that feels like a family.  We want to continue to attract people who share our dedication to serving those who need it the most.  If you are committed to caring for the underserved and seek training in an academically rigorous yet “hands-on” learning environment, please be sure to contact us.  We look forward to sharing our enthusiasm with you. 

 

Sincerely,
Erin Kratz, D.O.

Program Description

The OSU Family Medicine Residency and OMECO Teaching Health Center Family Medicine Programs are both three-year post graduate medical programs and ACGME accredited with Osteopathic Recognition. The programs are designed to accommodate the individual learning needs of training physicians, and focus on comprehensive medical care with particular emphasis on the family unit, the ambulatory aspect of patient care and the enhancement of clinical credentials in specific areas.

 

The OSU Family Medicine Residency is an 8-8-8 CMS funded program whose residents are employed by Oklahoma State University Medical Center and academically sponsored by OSU Center for Health Sciences. The OSU Health Care Center serves as the OSU Family Medicine continuity clinic.

 

The OMECO Family Medicine Teaching Health Center is a 5-5-5 HRSA federally funded program whose residents are employed by OSU Center for Health Sciences and focuses on training residents in community-based primary care settings particularly in rural and underserved areas. The OSU Eastgate Clinic and Morton Comprehensive Health both serve as the OMECO Family Medicine Teaching Health Center continuity clinics. 

 

The residency programs have some unique strengths:

  • The residents enjoy having their own inpatient hospital service where they care for patients on the general medical floors and in the ICU, supervised by Family Medicine faculty. 
  • The Women’s Health and Obstetrical experiences are primarily led by Family Medicine faculty. Three Family Medicine faculty perform obstetrical deliveries, two of which are fellowship trained in operative obstetrics.
  • Residents have the benefit of performing osteopathic manipulation in their continuity clinic and in the hospital
