Established in 1993 at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center in the Colleges of Dentistry and Medicine, the Native American Center of Excellence Consortium has been made possible with funds provided by the U.S. Public Health Service. Designated as the only Native American Center among the 54 dental schools in the United States and only one of four located in a College of Medicine, the activities of this center are directed toward accomplishing the following goals:

  • Increasing interest in dental and medical careers among Native American high school and college students.
  • Better preparing Native American students pursuing careers in dentistry and medicine.
  • Increasing awareness among all OU dental and medical graduates and other practitioners in Oklahoma of the health needs of Native Americans.
  • Encouraging Native Americans to pursue careers in higher education, resulting in increased appointments to faculty and administrative positions.
  • Fostering research related to the health of Native Americans.
