OSU-COM Adds Location at Cherokee Nation in Tahlequah

The Cherokee Nation and Oklahoma State University Center for Health Sciences have announced the establishment of the nation’s first college of medicine to be located at a tribal health facility in Tahlequah, which is set to open in 2020.

The new College of Osteopathic Medicine at the Cherokee Nation will be an additional location of the College of Osteopathic Medicine located in Tulsa.

Current plans call for the enrollment of an inaugural class of 50 students, starting in the fall of 2020, with a total of 200 students when fully operational. The new medical college will be located at the W.W. Hastings Hospital campus, 100 S. Bliss Ave., and will occupy approximately 60,000 square feet.

“The establishment of the College of Osteopathic Medicine at the Cherokee Nation is the culmination of years of work and is part of our steadfast commitment to making Cherokee Nation’s health care not only the best in Indian country, but the best in the state of Oklahoma,” said Bill John Baker, Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation.
