Interdisciplinary Health Sciences Center

Healthy communities are built where education and outreach intersect

Addressing the changing health needs of our diverse communities — obesity, addiction, diabetes, infectious diseases and mental illness — requires health care professionals who connect a multitude of specialties and technologies to a comprehensive understanding of health.

Ohio State’s new health sciences education space is where students become tomorrow’s health care leaders. Engaged with people wherever they live and work, these leaders will create health care solutions for their communities. Patient by patient, family by family, community by community, they put care into action.

Warm and welcoming environments support Ohio State’s work to build diverse communities of medical students.

The space includes environments — indoors and outside — where students can convene and build team approaches to health care.

The health sciences education space is situated steps away Ohio State's medical center and cancer hospital — putting students near the patients they'll serve and the doctors they'll learn from.

Bringing comprehensive health care to communities big and small

In this new learning space, medical students learn with and connect with doctors, nurses, social workers, pharmacists, psychologists and others — forging a “team approach” for effective patient care.

Combining this comprehensive view of health care with an intimate knowledge of their own communities, they have the support of an exhaustive web of health care providers — regardless of where they’re located. It’s that comprehensive approach that will help them lead the charge necessary to create more vibrate, healthy futures wherever they practice.
