Eagle Alumni quickly rise to the top of their professional healthcare school classes because of the hands-on experience gained in the cadaver lab. Small groups of four to five students, who have met the prerequisite of either Human Anatomy or Human Physiology, dissect an entire cadaver over the course of a semester. This is very rare for undergraduate students! Many universities strictly limit students to those with a specific major or to observe as graduate students perform the dissection.
90+ Percent Acceptance Rate for Medical, Dental, and Allied Health Schools

Eagles Health Initiative
Eagles Health Initiative is an organization of Oklahoma Christian University students who are called by the Christian faith to educate and serve the community in the areas of health and wellness. EHI focuses on three pillars of health: mental, physical, and spiritual. EHI hosts events for members that allow them to work on these pillars of health. Not only do events focus on improving the health of the members, but EHI also works on improving these pillars of health at OC and in the community. Through service to others, members fulfill EHI’s mission illustrated in the club verse, Galatians 5:13 - “But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.”
