This time of year makes me reminisce on the excitement and accompanying stress that surrounds trying to figure out which program suits your educational, family, and overall life needs. Therefore, I wanted to highlight three of my favorite aspects of the Great Plains Family Medicine Residency Program, so applicants have a better idea of who we are as a residency program.

About Us

The Great Plains Family Medicine Residency Program provides exceptional academic and experiential training to prepare well-rounded family physicians uniquely qualified to meet the needs of a changing healthcare environment based on the New Model of Family Medicine.

Through our association with Integris Baptist Medical Center and Deaconess Hospital, five residents a year prepare for their future in a “real life” learning experience supported by a talented faculty, the latest technology, and exposure to a broad spectrum of evidence-based family medicine, from birth to geriatrics. Great Plains supports a biopsychosocial approach to patient care, emphasizing the importance of treating the whole person while recognizing the unique contributions of family medicine physicians to all size communities, rural and urban.

Our History

 

Two of Oklahoma City’s major hospitals, Integris Baptist Medical Center and Deaconess Hospital, recognized the need for training family physicians in the community setting. This need was answered in July 1994 when the Great Plains Medical Foundation was created for the purpose of sponsoring a family medicine residency program. The Great Plains Family Medicine Residency Program was accredited by ACGME in 1995 and residents began training shortly there after.

Initially, the program trained four residents per year. In 1999 the program expanded to five resident slots in each year.

GPFM is a community based residency program with an academic affiliation with the Department of Family and Preventive Medicine at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center.
