Considering Medical School?

Graduates from all over the country attend the OSU College of Osteopathic Medicine.

Why? OSU Medicine's family atmosphere and small class size foster a supportive learning environment that produces world-class doctors. Our students receive excellent clinical training through our OSU clinic systems and at our teaching hospital. OSU Medicine has an active student body that is community service-focused and provides opportunities for leadership.

Students also like OSU-COM's consistent ranking in U.S. News and World Report as one of the nation's top schools for primary care. It was also named the most popular medical school in the country by U.S. News and World Report.

Plus, when they graduate from the OSU College of Osteopathic Medicine, our students join more than 3,000 alumni across the nation living out their dream to practice medicine. OSU-COM graduates practice in rural Oklahoma, the Mayo Clinic, Vanderbilt University Medical Center and other notable facilities.

Those alumni share a common bond beyond their alma mater: a commitment to service and leadership--a role the OSU family fulfills each day.


OSU medical students’ pass rate consistently ranks top in the nation on the National Board of Osteopathic Medical Examiners. The College Osteopathic Medicine 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, 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.
