AllianceHealth Durant Family Medicine Residency

Core Site assignments are for year three only. Clerkship placement during year four is based solely on the site’s availability and approval. Students must follow the scheduling protocols outlined by the location and the Clinical Education Guidelines.

The Family Medicine Residency Program at Alliance Health Durant, in conjunction with Oklahoma State University College of Health Sciences (OSU-CHS), Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences (KCU-COM) and the Osteopathic Medical Education Consortium of Oklahoma (OMECO), are committed to providing comprehensive, rural-based, community-oriented primary care to our patients. This program was conceived in 1997 and has provided an outstanding training experience for residents in family medicine.

As of July 2022, we have proudly graduated 77 residents over 25 years and estimate our graduates have provided more than 1,000,000 patient encounters specific to rural America. Our faculty, staff and residents are committed to training high quality physicians to practice in rural communities. This is our life, it is our passion and it is our mission.
