Rural Family Medicine Training

Program Description

The Medical Center of Southeastern Oklahoma is a modern 140-bed facility that serves as a hub for trauma and patient care in Durant, Bryan County, and surrounding smaller communities. Durant enjoys a stable population and economy, based primarily on recreational opportunities at nearby Lake Texoma and Southeastern Oklahoma State University.

Durant provides a unique opportunity for training in a rural location. Our Family Medicine Internship & Residency offer all the advantages of an urban teaching hospital without the disadvantages of competition from other residency programs.

Physicians on staff and in the community will also participate in the educational experience of residents.
