The Summer Scholars Program ensures that diversity remains a priority and key component of the college's mission. For more than twenty five years, Summer Scholars participants have been preparing for the challenges and rewards of medical school. Twenty-five applicants are selected each year to participate in this rigorous program designed to give an intensive and realistic introduction to the first-year curriculum at OU-COM. In addition to traditional medical school curricula taught by medical college faculty, graduate students and upper-class medical students, the program focuses on case-based problem solving and small-group/team work. You'll also benefit from special lectures, clinical experiences, and study and time management skill sessions in addition to workshops on cultural competency and research methods.
