Rural Health

Responsible for the rural education portion of the OSU College of Osteopathic Medicine, the Center for Rural Health oversees the rural rotations of our third and fourth year medical students. Once trained and in practice, doctors need support. The 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 our state’s rural residents. Many of these services are free and provide important information not readily available to most rural communities. We also serve as a statewide clearinghouse for rural health information.

The Center for Rural Health works to improve health care in rural Oklahoma through:

  • Student education
  • Residency training
  • Research
  • Program applications
  • Advocacy
  • Alliances with others who share its goals
