Internal Medicine Program


Mission Statement

The TMG/OMECO Internal Medicine Residency Program trains Physicians to provide excellence in healthcare, with an emphasis on providing health care for rural and underserved areas of Oklahoma.

Program Aims

The TMG/OMECO Internal Medicine program will be recognized as the program of choice for rural Internal Medicine training.  The program will produce graduates who are dedicated, effective, and compassionate community leaders who are prepared to fulfill the healthcare needs of rural and under-served Oklahoma. The program values are also consistent with Northeastern Health System’s values of Courtesy, Accountability, Respect, Efficiency, and Safety (CARES).

Our program will achieve our mission and vision through these specific aims:

  • Train physicians to practice Internal Medicine in rural, under-served communities, and to lead teams to reduce disparities in health care.
  • Develop competence in providing primary care, inpatient care, and internal medicine based sub-specialty care.
  • Instill the professional and ethical standards that focus on patient safety and quality improvement, self-assessment and wellness, self-directed study,

and leadership skills.

  • Apply the tenets of osteopathic medicine for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of illness, disease, and injury.


Our residency program fosters an environment of celebrating individual contributions and talents of our residents in order to create a meaningful learning environment.  Recognizing the value brought by different perspectives, we actively recruit individuals from diverse backgrounds who share our mission of service to rural citizens and those experiencing health disparities due to lack of access to high-quality care.

We have successfully recruited and retained physicians on our medical staff with a diversity of backgrounds including culture, gender, ethnicity, religion, and age.  Additionally, we value individuals who have lived in rural communities and understand the barriers to care associated with limited access to care.

As part of our recruitment program, our residents serve as mentors to medical students at the Oklahoma State University College of Osteopathic Medicine – Cherokee Nation campus.  This relationship allows medical students the opportunity to be mentored by resident physicians while exploring our internal medicine training in our community.
