Give to Ohio State


College of Medicine

One hundred years ago, a group of forward-thinking central Ohioans recognized the value of integrating medical education with innovative research and scientific-based care. Academic medicine was born. In 1914, The Ohio State University opened our College of Medicine. Led by the area’s best practicing physician-educators, students learned scientific lessons in classrooms and labs. Students then followed their clinical educators into Ohio State’s 21-bed on-campus hospital for training at the patients’ bedsides. These humble beginnings formed the foundation of the College of Medicine’s rich legacy of medical leadership and excellence.

Today, Ohio State’s College of Medicine is a national leader in preparing physicians, scientists, educators, policy leaders and allied health professionals. More than 800 students are working toward MD degrees through our innovative Lead, Serve, Inspire curriculum. Some students combine medical education with a professional degree in health management, law, business or research. Another 800 young physicians from around the world come to Ohio State to complete residency training alongside clinical experts. Through the years, Ohio State’s 21-bed hospital has grown to the inspiring five-hospital Wexner Medical Center, which admitted more than 56,000 patients in FY13, as thousands of other people were cared for in multispecialty outpatient settings.

In 2014, we look back with pride on a century of excellence and achievement, and we look forward united in our singular purpose--to improve people’s lives through advancements in medical education, research and patient care!
