It is a high honor to be chosen to lead this wonderful school. The energy, enthusiasm and commitment to excellence that permeates The Ohio State University College of Medicine will make my job easier. Long known for its clinical quality, the College now boast some of the most cutting edge research and a very innovative medical student curriculum. New research, clinical and educational facilities are being constructed, underscoring the University's commitment to meeting President Gordon Gee's goal of achieving preeminence.
Finally, one last feature sets us apart from our competitors – our people. Despite the academic rigor and clinical excellence of our faculty and staff, The Ohio State University College of Medicine is without a doubt the most congenial, collegial and friendliest medical school in the nation!
