Founding President Dr. John Barson Endowed Scholarship

Known for his expertise in developing curricula and residency programs, Dr. Barson was appointed by the State Regents and legislature of Oklahoma in the 1970s to establish a new medical college emphasizing primary care in Tulsa, OK. His tenure and service as Founding President of the Oklahoma College of Osteopathic Medicine and Surgery was unmatched; before he stepped down as President in 1984, the State Regents designated the John Barson Administration Building at the medical campus of Oklahoma State University as a center for professional studies and biomedical research.
