Tulsa Schweitzer Fellowship - Oxley College of Health & Natural Sciences

Tulsa Schweitzer Fellowship

The Albert Schweitzer Fellowship is a 12-month health leadership program that addresses Oklahoma’s immense health disparities. The Fellowship does this by innovating unique solutions now through Fellow projects and building leaders-in-health equipped to continue to improve the health of our community for the long-haul.

The Tulsa Schweitzer Fellowship is housed at The University of Tulsa Oxley College of Health Sciences. It is one of 13 sites across the U.S.

Each year, 10 to 15 fellows are selected through a competitive process from a wide range of graduate and professional degree programs at Tulsa-area universities including The University of Tulsa, University of Oklahoma-Tulsa, Oklahoma State University-Tulsa, Oklahoma State University Center for Health Sciences and Langston University. In the first five years of the Tulsa Schweitzer Fellowship, Tulsa fellows have launched 48 unique projects, served more than 5,419 vulnerable Tulsans and contributed more than 10,382 hours to the community.
