Kayse Shrum, D.O., OSU-CHS provost and the dean of the OSU College of Osteopathic Medicine, Greg Gray, D.O., an emergency room physician at St. Francis Hospital and OSU College of Osteopathic alumnus ('89), William Pettit, D.O., OSU-CHS interim senior associate dean of academic affairs and associate dean of rural health, and Rachel Pattison, OSM-IV, recently discussed the importance of residency programs and the OSU Medical Center in a video shot during Osteopathic Medicine Day at the state Capitol.
During the event, hosted by the Oklahoma Osteopathic Association, students, faculty, alumni and administrators met with state legislators to discuss health care issues, including funding to support residency programs and the OSU Medical Center. OSU-COM partners closely with OSU Medical Center, which serves as the primary teaching hospital for OSU-CHS and is the largest osteopathic teaching center in the United States, training more than 150 resident physicians in primary and sub-specialty care each year.
