U.S. News & World Report has consistently ranked OSU-CHS among the best medical allopathic and osteopathic schools in the country. In 2012, OSU-COM was named the nation's most popular medical school by the publication. U.S. News also reported that the Center for Health Sciences ranked third nationwide for financial aid given to its students. OSU medical students’ pass rate consistently ranks top in the nation on the National Board of Osteopathic Medical Examiners. The College Osteopathic Medicine (COM) faculty frequently receives national recognition for outstanding work, including the recent Distinguished Osteopathic Surgeon Award from the American College of Osteopathic Surgeons.
The College of Osteopathic Medicine has a class size of approximately 115 students per year, with a current total student enrollment of 374, and 86 percent of the students are from Oklahoma. To date, the College has graduated more than 2,250 physicians. Two-thirds of the graduates practice in primary care (family practice, pediatrics, internal medicine, and obstetrics and gynecology) and one-third practice in specialty areas such as dermatology, neurology, surgery, obstetrics, gynecology, ophthalmology, psychiatry, anesthesiology and gastroenterology. The College of Medicine partners closely with the OSU Medical Center, which serves as the largest osteopathic teaching center in the United States, training 151 resident physicians in primary and sub-specialty care each year.
Administration, faculty, and staff of the OSU College of Osteopathic Medicine adhere to the American Osteopathic Association's Code of Ethics, adopted by the College in 2008. As student members of the osteopathic profession, OSU-COM students are expected to comply with the AOA Code of Ethics.
