School Overview

School Info

"Training and educating primary care physicians for rural and underserved Oklahoma is at the heart of our mission," says John Fernandes, D.O., M.B.A., president and dean of OSU`s medical school. "Producing excellent doctors and keeping Oklahomans healthy is our mandate and we are gratified to be recognized for our commitment. OSU's medical school was created in 1972 to prepare primary care physicians for Oklahoma. The school has graduated more than 2,000 doctors. Nearly 60% are in active primary care practice in the state, many in rural or underserved areas. It is estimated that the economic impact to each community from each OSU physician is $1 million annually."

Curriculum

The curriculum includes simulated clinical experiences, opportunities for independent study, and frequent consultation with faculty members and community-based physicians. In a spiral curriculum, study matter is continuously reintroduced to the student in greater depth and complexity. This method serves to reinforce prior learning and promote meaningful retention. The curriculum integrates subject matter derived from the biological, clinical, and behavioral sciences to permit full comprehension of the clinician`s work and to provide a foundation for a lifetime of learning by the student.

Facilities

Located on the west bank of the Arkansas River, minutes from downtown Tulsa, the OSU Center for Health Sciences campus is housed in a modern, four-building complex on sixteen acres.The complex consists of classrooms, basic and clinical science teaching laboratories, offices, research areas, lecture halls, break-out rooms, a medical bookstore and a medical library. Interstate Highway 244 borders the campus and provides convenient access to the center. The OSU Health Care Center, located on six acres one-half mile south of the main campus, serves as both a teaching clinic for students and a health care resource for the community.

About the LizzyM Score

LizzyM, SDN Moderator and medical school admissions committee member, is the inventor of the LizzyM Score. The score allows you to see if you are a competitive applicant at a given school. If your LizzyM Score is far below or above the average, you may not be a good fit. If your score is far below, your application may be screened out due to numerical cutoffs. If it is far above, the school may assume they are your “safety” school and that you won’t attend if they offer an acceptance. This score should be used only as a guide to help you select schools and is not a guarantee of acceptance at any school. If you use this as your sole criteria to select medical schools to apply to, you don’t deserve to get in anyway.
