Meet the President

Shrum Kayse

Kayse Shrum is the President of the Oklahoma State University Center for Health Sciences. She also serves as the Dean for the College of Osteopathic Medicine. During her leadership tenure, she has focused on expanding the physician pipeline by increasing the number of students from rural Oklahoma who are interested in attending medical school. As Provost, Shrum has also overseen an overhaul of curriculum requirements for students in the College of Osteopathic Medicine, including the addition of a rural medical track. In 2012, U.S. News and World Report named OSU-CHS the “Most Popular Medical School” in the nation.

By investing in OSU-CHS, you are helping us tackle some of the most pressing healthcare challenges facing Oklahoma, including a shortage in primary care physicians.

Dr. Shrum has worked with high schools and FFA chapters across the state, implemented an early admissions program with OSU’s College of Arts and Sciences and Division of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources in Stillwater, and launched Operation Orange, a series of summer camps designed to increase interest of rural high school students in the medical field.
