Our mission at Oklahoma State University Center for Health Sciences is to educate
and train osteopathic physicians, scientists and health care professionals, with an
emphasis on providing health care for rural and underserved areas of Oklahoma.
The 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 Health Care
Administration and the School of Allied Health.
