Erick Kaufman, MD was born and raised in Oklahoma City. He graduated with Honors from the University of Oklahoma School of Medicine in 1992 and went on to serve three years of Ophthalmology Residency at the University of Arkansas, Jones Eye Institute in Little Rock, Arkansas. Dr. Kaufman then completed an Internal Medicine residency and board certification in Portland, Oregon. He settled with his family in Springfield, Missouri and enjoyed 13 years of private practice with the prestigious, multi-specialty group of Ferrell Duncan Clinic, which is comprised of 100+ board certified specialists. In 2010 Dr. Kaufman returned to Oklahoma City to join the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine as Assistant Professor. During his tenure with the University he was part of a faculty practice with OU Physicians and attended on the wards, leading teams of students and residents in hospital-based care. Dr. Kaufman also worked as an Associate Program Director, recruiting and developing Internal Medicine residents. He also served as Medical Director for the Internal Medicine Residency clinic where he led and taught outpatient medicine to the next generation of students and residents. As a part of this effort, Dr. Kaufman and his team provided care for over 200 indigent patients a week. During his time with the University he gave Grand Rounds, trained and became the Chief Quality and Safety Officer for the Department of Medicine, participated in research and publications with the Sjogrens group at the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation and was on the Governor’s Council of the American College of Physicians. Along with his professional activities, Dr. Kaufman volunteered his time as an attending physician at Good Shepherd Clinic in downtown Oklahoma City, which serves the poor and indigent. In 2017 Dr. Kaufman left the University for the private sector. In 2018, along with an accredited group of investors, he led the creation of Doctors of Cannabis (DOC) medical practice. The primary focus and mission of Doctors of Cannabis (DOC) is to be Oklahoma’s authoritative source of clinical care for Oklahomans who wish to explore its medical use. The group also promotes education, safety and research in this relatively new field of medicinal cannabis.
