Richard C. Staab, D.O. Memorial SymposiumWhen referring to an Internist, the phrase typically used is “the Doctor’s Doctor”. In a relatively brief period of time, the internal medicine post graduate trainees become the physicians who will be consulted when the puzzle pieces do not fit. In order to continue our tradition of training the best internists and subspecialists, we are committed to providing every opportunity to enhance their education during residency and beyond. Dr. Staab was dedicated to preparing graduates who would excel. We are committed to continuing his service through the establishment of the Richard C. Staab Memorial Symposium.

Target AudienceThis program is intended for physicians practicing in general internal medicine and the internal medicine subspecialties. Topics presented at the program will explore commonly seen conditions, changes in existing processes, and updates for continuous certification.

Richard C. Staab Internal Medicine Graduate Education Fund
This fund was initiated for the purpose of supporting the ongoing educational needs of the Internal Medicine Residency program at OSU Medical Center. It is through resources such as this that we are able to maintain the standards of excellence that have always been associated with our training program. We believe that this fund is a fitting tribute to Dr. Staab, a prominent Tulsa oncologist who dedicated his career not only to the care of his patients, but also to the teaching, training, and mentoring of dozens of young osteopathic physicians. All revenues from this program will benefit the Richard C. Staab Internal Medicine Graduate Education Fund.
