Rural and Underserved Primary Care Early Admissions Program

Bachelor of Science from the Northeastern State University 3+1 Program

The Oklahoma State University College of Osteopathic Medicine (OSU-COM) seeks to admit students who want to become primary care physicians in rural and underserved Oklahoma. The Rural and Underserved Primary Care Early Admissions Program allows students to complete pre-doctoral training in seven years.

OSU-COM and the selection committee recognize that the Northeastern State University (NSU) provides rigorous academic preparation for a variety of careers in healthcare, including osteopathic medicine. Utilizing a preset pre-medical curriculum for each course for the first three years on the Tahlequah campus or their sophomore* and junior years on the Broken Arrow campus, combined with the OSU-COM first year curriculum as their fourth year, students will earn a Bachelor of Science degree from NSU.

*Students will be concurrently enrolled in Tulsa Community College (TCC) and NSUBA for their sophomore year.

Students then progress through the second, third and fourth years of the rural and underserved medical track to graduate with a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.) degree.
