About This Program
As a premier academic program, The Ohio State University Family Medicine Residency Program’s mission is to improve people’s lives through innovation and excellence in education, patient care and scholarship. The aim of the program is to train family medicine residents who, upon graduation, become board certified in family medicine and are fully competent family physicians capable of providing full-spectrum, high-quality, patient-centered care. We aspire to foster and teach a culture of wellness, resilience and professionalism that promotes self-care and lifelong learning; cultivate an atmosphere of inquiry and scholarship; and incorporate health equity education and training to prepare residents to improve the health of populations that they serve. The Ohio State Department of Family Medicine has 400+ faculty and staff, 27 residents and nine fellows; sees 90,000 patients a year at 12 practice locations; and received $2 million in research awards in 2019.
