About the Program


Message from the Program Director

Welcome to the Chickasaw Nation Family Medicine Residency (CNFMR)! I am so glad you are taking the time to learn about our program. Hopefully, as you explore our website, you will find answers to your questions and develop an appreciation for the culture of our program. I chose to work at the CNFMR because of the wonderful people, outstanding patient care and the chance to educate incredible students.
Our educational program goal is to ensure that graduates are able to practice as Family Practitioners in whatever setting is right for them. We are a state-of-the-art hospital in a rural setting with the skills, knowledge and technology necessary to be successful. We provide residents with excellent opportunities to grow, both professionally and personally, through “hands-on” learning and evidenced-based medicine. We hold a solid foundation of ambulatory training, allowing residents to take responsibility for the care of patients of all ages who have broad ranges of acute problems and chronic diseases, with an emphasis on maternity, behavioral health and preventative care. Your next three years in training will be an unforgettable experience that will prepare you for a rewarding career as a competent, capable and caring physician.
We recognize that every resident is unique and may not envision the same future practice; however, through a variety of elective choices and experiences, residents can customize their education to glean the knowledge and confidence needed to attain their goals.
CNFMR will prepare graduates to be outstanding family physicians, regardless of the location and scope they choose for their career. I am proud to be part of this tradition. I hope we have the opportunity to meet and share more about our program. We look forward to welcoming you to the Chickasaw Nation Family Medicine Residency.
Yakoke (thank you),
Dr. M. Ryan Davis,
Program Director
