What is the OU Community Health Alliance? 

The OU Community Health Alliance is an organization of OU medical students, in cooperation with other students across the Health Sciences Center, who aim to better the healthcare system in Oklahoma City. Through volunteerism, we work to uplift, educate, and empower patients. The Alliance exposes students to the challenges of providing health care with limited resources, while developing more compassionate and empathetic healthcare professionals.

Our Primary Goals

Foster a life-long passion for community service
Expose medical students to the needs of the community in which we live
Create an educational experience for medical students at all levels of training
