CONTACT: OU Public Affairs, (405) 325-1701

NORMAN – Expansion of the Tulsa School of Community Medicine M.D. Program Track at the College of Medicine, Tulsa, in cooperation with the University of Tulsa, a rock testing system for the Mewbourne School of Petroleum and Geological Engineering, and the replacement of portable bleachers in the McCasland Field House are among topics to be discussed by the OU Board of Regents at its regular meeting Wednesday, Oct. 23, in Lawton.

The meeting will begin at 8:30 a.m. in the McMahon Centennial Complex at Cameron University, 2800 West Gore Blvd., in Lawton, with Regents considering items submitted by Cameron University. At 1:30 p.m., the Regents’ meeting will resume with the Board considering items submitted by Rogers State University, followed by those submitted by OU.

In response to a growing physician shortage in Oklahoma, the OU board will consider a recommendation for the College of Medicine in cooperation with the University of Tulsa plans to expand its current two-year Tulsa School of Community Medicine branch campus into a four-year branch campus where medical students will experience all four years of the medical curriculum and educational track on the Tulsa campus. Students currently experience the first two years of the curriculum on the Oklahoma City campus and the final two years on the Tulsa School of Community Medicine branch campus. If approved, University of Tulsa faculty will participate in the delivery of the pre-clinical curriculum on site at the School of Community Medicine campus. 

The Regents also will discuss a proposal for the purchase of a rock testing system for OU petroleum and geological engineers. The rock mechanics testing equipment allows performance of essential research and development tasks that involve important rock properties needed for unconventional reservoir development and to analyze the risk of induced seismicity.

The Regents also will consider the replacement of the portable bleachers in the McCasland Field House to increase seating capacity and to meet current configuration setup.

The next meeting of the OU Board of Regents is currently scheduled for Dec. 5 and 6 in Norman.
