High School Programs


High school is the perfect time to begin exploring your interests and discovering the path to achieve your goals. If you enjoy helping people, are interested in science and want to make a real difference in the lives of Oklahomans, you could enjoy a career as a physician.

At the OSU College of Osteopathic Medicine, we train students for careers as primary care physicians and specialists, and we have a rural medical track that gives special training to medical students who would like to serve in rural Oklahoma.

Many students decide they want to go to medical school while earning their undergraduate degree. Did you know that you can start preparing for medical school before you even get to college?
