The interactive map below shows the self-reported hometowns for medical students in the Class of 2017 enrolled at the Oklahoma State University College of Osteopathic Medicine. The symbols are scaled proportionate to the total number of students from each community. By clicking on a symbol, you can access a pop-up menu that lists the community and number of students. The zoom tools allow you to focus on a particular region.
The students hail from across the country and around the world. The largest share of students (94) call Oklahoma home. Of those students, over 35% list a rural Oklahoma community as their hometown. Ten other states, France, Ghana, and India are also represented in the class.
