The TSCM is a medical school which has been established under joint sponsorship of The University of Tulsa and the University of Oklahoma. It draws faculty from both institutions with medical science faculty largely resident at The University of Tulsa and clinical faculty predominantly drawn from the University of Oklahoma.
The TUFCM is under the administrative authority of the Dean of the Oxley College of Health Sciences of The University of Tulsa. Faculty in TUFCM teach in the TSCM, and in that role their curriculum and supervision are under the dean of the medical school.
The school was established to address the need for more medical doctors in Oklahoma, especially ones who work in family practice, internal medicine and pediatrics in underserved rural and urban communities. The school follows a curriculum that integrates medical science and clinical experience required to earn the M.D. degree. The first class was admitted in 2015.

The Early Careers in Community Medicine (ECCM) program provides highly qualified undergraduate students at The University of Tulsa with a unique opportunity to pursue an early provisional acceptance into the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine program, leading to an M.D. degree.
