Our History

Two of Oklahoma City’s major hospitals, INTEGRIS Baptist Medical Center and INTEGRIS Deaconess Hospital, recognized the need for training family physicians in the community setting. This need was answered in July 1994 when the Great Plains Medical Foundation was created for the purpose of sponsoring a family medicine residency program. The Great Plains Family Medicine Residency Program was accredited by ACGME in 1995 and residents began training shortly there after.

Initially, the program trained four residents per year. In 1999 the program expanded to five resident slots in each year.

Great Plains Medical Foundation is a community based residency program with an academic affiliation with the Department of Family and Preventive Medicine at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center.
