The Ohio State University
OSU’s College of Medicine has flourished under Souba’s leadership the past four years. The College has increased the number of medical student scholarships dramatically, has recruited several new department chairs and many accomplished faculty members, and has seen growth in new programs including graduating the first class of Biomedical Sciences students. The Medical Center is grateful to Souba for his contributions during his tenure as dean.
