Oklahoma State University Center for Health Sciences is partnering with the FFA for Blue Coat to White Coat, a program to identify and cultivate talented students interested in a career as a physician. FFA embraces many of the same values that make a successful physician: leadership, commitment, integrity and community service. By mentoring these outstanding students, OSU-CHS will bring more doctors to rural Oklahoma and ensure a brighter, healthier future for our state.
