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!
