Oklahoma State University


Oklahoma State University Center for Health Sciences (OSU-CHS) was founded in 1972 as the Oklahoma College of Osteopathic Medicine and Surgery. In 1988, Oklahoma College of Osteopathic Medicine and Surgery merged into the OSU System and embraced a new name – the OSU College of Osteopathic Medicine.

In 1997, OSU-CHS was established as an academic health center to extend OSU’s reach and expand OSU’s capabilities in the health sciences. Today, OSU-CHS is a premier academic health center comprised of the College of Osteopathic Medicine, the School of Biomedical Sciences, the School of Forensic Sciences, the School of Healthcare Administration and the School of Allied Health.

OSU-CHS educates osteopathic physicians, scientists, allied health professionals and health care administrators for Oklahoma with an emphasis on serving rural and underserved Oklahoma. OSU-CHS offers graduate and professional degrees with over 1,000 students enrolled in academic programs.

In addition to our educational mission, OSU-CHS also operates an extensive clinic system in Tulsa, employing over 90 full-time clinicians. We also have a robust partnership with our teaching hospital, the OSU Medical Center. Through our teaching hospital and network of clinics, OSU-CHS is a major provider of health care in Oklahoma.
