Interview

While interviewing with In His Image, you will be assigned a resident Day Host. A typical interview day with In His Image begins with a hospital tour and participation in morning rounds at St. John Hospital. From there, you will tour our clinic and administration site where you will participate in interviews with the Executive Director, Residency Program Director and Administrator. Lunch will be provided, during which time you will have an opportunity to chat casually with a group of current residents. That evening, resident hosts will take you to dinner and help to answer any questions you have about residency at In His Image. Our program will provide lodging for you (and your spouse, if applicable) while in Tulsa and will also help offset the cost of your airfare or car travel by reimbursing all or most of your costs.

Logistics

In His Image selects residents on the basis of their preparedness, ability, aptitude, academic credentials, communication skills and personal qualities such as motivation and integrity. IHI does not discriminate with regard to sex, race, age, color, national origin, disability, veteran status, or religious affiliation. Residents are expected to abide by Biblical standards and to not use profanity, illegal drugs or other drugs in an illegal manner. Residents should not participate in gambling, stealing, cheating, sexual impurity and other immoral activities.

Applicants should apply to multiple programs such as those listed by CMDA under National Ministries > Students > Christian Residency Programs. In His Image uses the NRMP match and complies with their policy that a program may freely express interest in a candidate but must not offer a guarantee that any candidate will be ranked within the program’s quota.

Experience

Our preceptorship is designed around an active outpatient clinic experience to help medical students develop skills in the evaluation and treatment of ambulatory medical problems and to learn about the operation of a busy family medicine clinic. We also include an inpatient experience to gain exposure to some of the peculiarities and unique methods of running an inpatient service from a Christian family medicine perspective.

In His Image Family Medicine Residency Program welcomes U.S. medical students to apply for a two- to four- week rotation during their third (March-May) or fourth (July-January) years of medical school. No health service, liability insurance or board is provided for visiting students. Upon request, we will do our best to accommodate lodging requests through resident host homes. Students MUST have their own car for transportation during their rotation.
