The Albert Schweitzer Fellowship is a 12-month leadership and service program for Tulsa-area graduate and professional degree students who are passionate about addressing unmet health needs in Tulsa and sharpening their leadership skills. Fellows participate in the fellowship concurrent to their studies. The fellowship is grounded in the legacy and philosophy of famed physician and humanitarian Dr. Albert Schweitzer.
The Tulsa Schweitzer Fellowship is housed at The University of Tulsa Oxley College of Health Sciences. TU President Gerard P. Clancy, a psychiatrist, spearheaded the effort to bring the fellowship to Tulsa in 2015 as part of his career focus of community service and addressing health inequities.
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 three years of the Tulsa Schweitzer Fellowship, Tulsa fellows have launched 31 unique projects, served more than 2,000 vulnerable Tulsans and contributed more than 4,500 hours to the community.
