Advancing Health Care for Rural Oklahoma

The OSU Center for Rural Health funds programs aimed at providing Oklahoma’s rural practitioners, hospitals and clinics the support necessary to ensure access to quality health care for Oklahoma’s rural residents.

Many of these services are free and provide important information not readily available to most rural communities. The OSU Center for Rural Health also oversees the rural rotations for third and fourth year medical students. We also serve as a statewide clearinghouse for rural health information.
