Emergency Medicine

The Emergency Medicine Residency Program at Comanche County Memorial Hospital is a three-year program accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. The program has six resident slots per year.

Our facility is a 263-bed, Level III trauma hospital located in Lawton, Oklahoma. We are the regional referral center for Southwest Oklahoma – you can practice big city medicine without the commute!

Our Emergency Department is newly remodeled. We have recently added 30,000 square feet of space, 34 beds, and five trauma beds. A helipad was also built on top of the ER. The Emergency Department currently sees approximately 55,000 patients per year.


The mission of our residency training program is to provide high quality, compassionate emergency medicine physicians who are adaptive, self-reliant and capable of working in any environment.


Statewide and region leader in emergency medicine education and health care delivery; and significantly impact the health and well-being of our state and region.
