Program Director Welcome Letter
Welcome to the OMECO THC at Oklahoma State University Family Medicine Residency
in Tulsa, Oklahoma! We hope you find our website full of specific information about our
program, residents, and faculty. We’d like for you to see not only the information you
need, but also what makes our training environment at OSU such a wonderful place.
Our program is sponsored by Oklahoma State University and is associated with the
largest osteopathic training hospital in the United States. All our residents learn full spectrum family medicine and are able to succeed in any type of practice they desire at
the end of their three years with us. Our graduates have gone on to practice outpatient
Family Medicine, inpatient Family Medicine, a combination of both, urgent care and
Emergency Medicine. Additionally, we have had multiple graduates enter fellowships in
Sports Medicine, OBGYN, OMM, Palliative Care, and Emergency Medicine.
We recognize that there are a multitude of excellent family medicine training options in
the country. Why choose us? There are many reasons, but the most important is the
people. 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. Other great aspects of our program
include a Clinical Pharmacist as part of our faculty, a wide range of pathology to which
our residents are exposed, and the opportunity to care for multiple different
underserved populations. Additionally, our program has a dedicated Wellness
curriculum to help our residents get through the stresses of residency.
For those of you who don’t yet know Tulsa, it’s a great city in which to do your training!
Tulsa has many of the benefits of a big city - like museums, opera and ballet companies, a plethora of concert venues, multiple professional sports teams, and a great local food
scene, with the perks of a small town including a low cost of living and low commute
times. Tulsa also has over 50 miles of trails for walking, cycling, and running. Tulsa’s
Gathering Place is a must-see and was ranked the best city park in the nation last year
by USA Today.
Thanks for taking a look at our program. If you have any questions that aren’t answered
on our website, please reach out to us!
