Training and Education

The OMECO Family Medicine Teaching Health Center at Oklahoma State University is funded for 40 total resident training positions. Ambulatory care and comprehensive family medical services are stressed. A substantial portion of the resident’s time is spent within their assigned continuity clinic site learning ambulatory care by interacting with patients, their families, faculty, and clinic staff.


Each resident is afforded the opportunity to extend his or her knowledge and skills to all areas of primary care through 6 electives. The residency program offers a well-rounded, quality training program in family medicine and is designed to prepare each resident for a successful career in family practice.


Beginning in July 2023, the program is adopting a clinic first model. This model will include 13 blocks during the academic year. Residents will spend 2 weeks in their continuity clinic and 2 weeks focused on their rotation. This will allow residents to have a more predictive work schedule for at least 2 weeks every month.


The residency programs have some unique strengths:

  • Clinic First model
  • Immersion Month to help PGY1 residents quickly orient to all aspects of our practice.
  • The residents enjoy having their own inpatient hospital service where they care for patients 
    supervised by Family Medicine faculty.
  • The Women’s Health and Obstetrical experiences are primarily led by Family Medicine 
    faculty. Two Family Medicine faculty perform obstetrical deliveries, one of which is
    fellowship trained in operative obstetrics.
  • Residents have the benefit of performing osteopathic manipulation in their continuity clinic 
    and in the hospital
  • Frequent Wellness activities
