The Albert Schweitzer Fellowship is a year-long program for Tulsa-area graduate and professional degree students who are passionate about addressing unmet health needs in Tulsa and sharpening their leadership skills. Each year, more than 25,000 people across the U.S. are served by these student-led projects. The fellowship is grounded in the legacy and philosophy of famed physician and humanitarian, Dr. Albert Schweitzer.
The Tulsa Schweitzer Fellowship is hosted by The University of Tulsa Oxley College of Health Sciences. TU’s president, Dr. Gerard “Gerry” Clancy 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, the University of Oklahoma-Tulsa, Oklahoma State University-Tulsa, Oklahoma State University-Center for Health Sciences and Langston University.
