OSU Residency Program Scores Top in Nation

The internal medicine residency program at OSU Medical Center earned the highest score among 81 osteopathic medicine internal residency programs in the nation on the American College of Osteopathic Internists 2008 Resident In-service Examination.
Shannon Boughner, D.O., a fourth-year resident, earned the highest national individual score.
The Resident In-Service exam is a national exam given each year to all internal medicine residents to evaluate their fund of knowledge and progression. The mean scores from each residency program are compared to one another to see how the program ranks nationwide. OSU Medical Center internal medicine program has had the highest mean scores in the nation for nine consecutive years.
“The exam is used to see how we are doing and to prepare residents for the more extensive boards,” Scott Hendrickson, D.O., assistant professor at Oklahoma State University College of Osteopathic Medicine, and residency director, said. “It can predict how the residents will do on certification board exams.”
