The Cause

Preserving Our Future

It is the exception, and not the rule, for one physician’s name to be spoken across the country with the same amount of recognition and reverence. Dr. Richard C. Staab was that physician.

The OSU Internal Medicine program prepares residents who continue to be touched by his legacy; and it is our mission to change the exception into the rule. Every year, this training program graduates approximately ten internal medicine physicians who go on to carry his legacy either into practice or on to fellowship.

We, as their trainers, are committed to each one of these residents and see their potential to change the landscape of osteopathic medicine as Dr. Staab did during his time. Our commitment comes from a place that has been entrenched into our practice and we continue to put forward efforts, such as this symposium, to ensure this legacy is not lost.

Richard C. Staab Internal Medicine Graduate Fund

The fund was initiated for the purpose of supporting the ongoing educational needs of the residents in the Internal Medicine Department at OSU Medical Center. It’s through funding such as this, that we are able to maintain the academic integrity of the physicians that OSU Medical Center continually places into the community. In addition, this memorial fund will also pay tribute to Dr. Staab, a prominent oncologist who had ties to Tulsa and understood the mission of training young osteopathic physicians.

Target Audience and Objectives

This program is intended for primary care physicians, with an emphasis on those practicing in the area of general internal medicine as well as internal medicine subspecialties. Topics presented at this CME explore and update primary care physicians on commonly seen conditions, changes that are occurring in existing processes and updates for continued certification.

Awarding Credits

Memorial Symposium for a maximum of sixteen (16) AOA Category 1-A credits and includes one hour of proper prescribing education which will allow osteopathic physicians to fulfill their Oklahoma licensure requirement. The Osteopathic Founders Foundation will report CME and specialty credits for all osteopathic physicians who complete and return both an attestation form and program evaluation for all sessions attended. Credit will be commensurate with the extent of the physician’s participation in this activity. This program has also been submitted to the Oklahoma Board of Pharmacy requesting approval of sixteen (16) contact hours of continuing pharmacy education. Approval is currently pending.
