A pediatric attending conducts daily teaching rounds. Residents are exposed to a wide range of diagnoses, creating an opportunity to learn about both common pediatric diseases and complex diagnostic challenges.



We have developed, and continue to adjust, our curriculum to meet the diverse needs of our residents and their future patients. Our world-class faculties are dedicated to teaching the next generation of physicians and researchers.

Clinical Skills Education & Testing Center


The Clinical Skills Education and Testing Center (CSETC) is a 22,000-square-foot facility at the OU Health Sciences Center where students and practicing clinicians engage in simulation to enhance their skills in patient care.

Simulation has become a standard in medical education. In simulated environments, students can practice complex skills in a safe and realistic setting.
