Ceremony set for tribally affiliated med school in Oklahoma


TAHLEQUAH, Okla. (AP) — The Cherokee Nation is welcoming 54 first-year medical students to to the nation's first tribally affiliated medical school.

The Oklahoma State University College of Osteopathic Medicine at the Cherokee Nation planned a ceremony Friday to recognize the students.

Construction on the 84,000-square-foot medical school building was delayed because of the pandemic, but is scheduled to be completed in December, university officials said.
