Open house lets college students learn more about OSU-CHS
College students interested in pursuing a career as a physician can explore the Oklahoma State University College of Osteopathic Medicine during Med-Xtravaganza on Saturday, March 8 from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
“Our state is experiencing a critical shortage of primary care physicians, especially in rural Oklahoma,” said OSU Center for Health Sciences President Kayse Shrum. “To combat this shortage, we are recruiting and mentoring students who want to remain in Oklahoma to practice medicine. Med-Xtravaganza offers these students an opportunity to experience medical school and learn more about OSU-CHS.”
Participants will meet with OSU-COM faculty and medical students, tour the OSU-CHS campus, participate in hands-on demonstrations and learn how to prepare for medical school. During the open house, participants will also study the anatomy of a human brain and listen to the stimulation of a patient’s heart and lungs.
College students and parents can sign up to attend Med-Xtravaganza by visiting medicine.okstate.edu by Friday, Feb. 28.
