Family Medicine Residency Training

Program Description:

The residency program at Tahlequah City Hospital is a community partnership with healthcare facilities centrally located in Tahlequah, Oklahoma. The program began its first year in July of 2009.

Tahlequah City Hospital is a modern 100 bed facility that serves as a hub for trauma and patient care in Cherokee County, Oklahoma and adjacent surrounding communities.

Tahlequah is the home of Northeastern State university, the Cherokee Nation, Lake Tenkiller, and the scenic Illinois River. Tahlequah provides a “big city style” atmosphere in a rural community. Our residency program is within one hour of an international airport in Tulsa, Oklahoma without the traffic congestion and time delays of a large city.

Continuity Clinics are in Tahlequah and rotations are available at both Tahlequah City Hospital, with 100 licensed beds, and Hastings Indian Medical Center, with licensed 60 beds.  Combined, the two hospitals constitute 160 beds of acute care with full-time multi-specialty coverage.  Our hospitals provide many other specialty services including: Internal Medicine, Obstetrics/Gynecology, General Surgery, Thoracic Surgery, Cardiovascular Surgery, Endovascular Surgery, Urology, Ophthalmology, Pathology, Orthopedic Surgery, Emergency Medicine, Pediatrics, Diagnostic Radiology, Interventional Radiology, Infectious Disease, Anesthesiology, Psychiatry, Physical and Rehabilitative Medicine, Pain Management, ENT, and Allergy Medicine.  Tahlequah City Hospital is the only hospital of its size in the entire State of Oklahoma to offer open-heart surgery.  As an institution we have developed into a very progressive regional medical center.

The Mission of Tahlequah City Hospital is to provide unsurpassed excellence in healthcare.  Quality is the key component in every service we offer, and we remain profoundly dedicated to the goal of producing the finest physicians in the profession.

Tahlequah is approved as a Physician Manpower Training Commission (PMTC) rural practice site.
