The University of Oklahoma - School of Community Medicine

Summer Institute

“I have seen firsthand the influence that a community-focused clinic has in the city of Waco, Texas, and I would like to expand on those experiences and see how community medicine is implemented elsewhere.” Ben Collins, 2009 medical student participant
 
The University of Oklahoma School of Community Medicine hosted an innovative, experiential examination of health care delivery in Tulsa during the second annual Summer Institute, July 26-31, 2009. Participants in the institute – one of only two of its kind in the country – included first and second- year University of Oklahoma medical students, physician assistant students, students from the OU Colleges of Social Work, Pharmacy and Nursing, and faculty members. The group took an in-depth look at community medicine from a range of perspectives and developed solutions to problems they identified during the week’s experience.
