The OEFOM was founded in August of 1967, and chartered by the State of Oklahoma as a nonprofit, charitable organization. Because of the need for additional physicians in the state, especially those in general practice, members of the Oklahoma Osteopathic Association provided wholehearted support of the Foundation. This support continues for osteopathic students in form of endowed scholarship programs. Learn more about the Foundation.
