Purpose

The 3 + 1 Program is a scholarship and accelerated degree program for undergraduate students in Oklahoma that have decided to become physicians, are interested in practicing primary care medicine in rural Oklahoma, and would like to accomplish this goal in 7 years rather than the customary 8.

How the program works:

  • Students spend their first 3 years of undergraduate studies in pursuit of their bachelor’s degree at a partner university listed at the bottom of the program website.
  • In the fourth year, students matriculate to Oklahoma State University College of Osteopathic Medicine (OSU-COM) to start the first year of medical school.
  • After successful completion of the first year of medical school, students are awarded a bachelor’s degree from the partner university.
  • After year 4 of medical school, students receive their doctor of osteopathic medicine degree.

Students in the 3+1 Program are required to complete their training in the OSU-COM Rural Medical Track where they will receive peer mentoring and 1-on-1 focused instruction.
