A vibrant medical school is critical for Oklahoma’s continuing development and success in medical education, biomedical research and healthcare. The OU College of Medicine is dedicated to being a leader and advancing the frontiers in each of these areas.

Every year over 2,000 individuals apply to OU College of Medicine. We interview approximately 300 applicants each year. Our typical class has 165 students, 40-45% women, 36% minority and a wide range of ages and backgrounds. We encourage student diversity, accepting students with undergraduate backgrounds in arts, sciences and humanities.

College of Medicine students receive an education that is steeped in the triad of academic medicine- education, research and patient care and enter their careers well-positioned to make a difference in people’s lives through both skill and compassion.
