Internal Medicine Residency Program
NHS proudly partners with Oklahoma State University Center for Health Sciences to train Internal Medicine residents in Tahlequah, Oklahoma.
Residents that complete their rotations at our facility can expect to be trained to provide quality patient care in the context of rural, family and community health care in both the hospital and ambulatory care settings.
Nurse Extern Program
NHS offers a Nurse Extern program for nursing students who have completed their 2nd semester of nursing school. This program introduces students to the rural healthcare setting, allows students to experience hands-on practice with nursing interventions and teaches students how to document assessments under the supervision and guidance of a nurse preceptor.

AHEC Scholars will practice interprofessional collaboration to join a well-prepared, diverse, and culturally competent primary care workforce demonstrating ream-based care to improve patient outcomes.
