Scott Shepherd received his medical degree from Oklahoma State University-Center for Health Sciences in 2008. He subsequently completed residency in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics with the University of Oklahoma- School of Community Medicine in Tulsa and is board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine. He spent a decade practicing as a hospitalist leading efforts to improve geriatric care in northeast Oklahoma. His projects included building a team that was awarded Premier Level status from the International Geriatric Fracture Society, one of less than twenty such programs across the US. This program eventually led to additional efforts including a complex spine program and geriatric trauma program all focused on reducing mortality, increasing quality and overall providing better outcomes for high-risk patients.
Dr. Shepherd has recently moved into primary care with Oak Street Health to continue work with the geriatric population, now focusing on prevention of hospitalization and building wellness in communities where traditional care has failed.
