Our Curriculum

The first 12 months of training is an intense, hospital-based training. The purpose is to help the resident gain basic medical knowledge and improve critical thinking skills that allow an increased measure of autonomy. During the first year of training, the resident receives comprehensive training with primary care physicians, internal medicine specialists, critical care, family medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, anesthesia, radiology and emergency medicine.The second and third year of training is more clinic-based medicine with an emphasis on clinical procedures and management of chronic conditions.


The AllianceHealth Durant Family Medicine Residency Program, in conjunction with Oklahoma State University College of Health Sciences and the Osteopathic Medical Education Consortium of Oklahoma, is committed to providing comprehensive, rural based, community-oriented primary care to our patients. The program began in 1997 and has provided an outstanding training experience for residents. As of July 2019, 61 residents have graduated and we estimate that our graduates have provided over 800,000 patient encounters specific to rural America. This is our life, it is our passion, and it is our mission.
