Sick kids deserve the best doctors.
The Children's Hospital Foundation fully supports the education of pediatric residents at both the University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University. We also provide training for family practice residencies in pediatrics.
Training pediatric residents in a child-specific hospital is the ideal scenario. Because we can provide specific expertise, numerous specialists and a variety of patient cases, a foundation for learning excellence is formed. Both of our university programs are highly supervised by attending physicians who are experts in their fields.
Supporting the education of student physicians offers benefits both to the hospital and to the community. We know that residents who study and train locally often choose to work locally. It's a big positive for Tulsa to retain this talent.
In short, we believe that creating better pediatric care starts with highly trained pediatric doctors.
