Academic Focus

The Ohio State University Family Medicine Residency Program provides a unique training experience, balancing the rigors of an academic program with the environment of traditional family medicine. As an integral part of The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, our residents are clinical instructors providing the opportunity to teach medical students and other health care professionals. In addition, academic focus provides opportunities for research and scholarship, which is unparalleled in community programs.

Continuity Clinics

Our university-based residency emphasizes family medicine with specialty rotations at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, a nationally ranked academic medical center. Our inpatient services at University East Hospital allow family practice residents to develop their clinical and technical skills in a supportive environment that fosters the development of life-long learning processes necessary for every family doctor. Residents also train at two nearby clinics, Family Medicine Thomas Rardin and Outpatient Care East, where faculty and community family physicians mentor and teach our residents in the office setting. Thomas Rardin Clinic is located north of the OSU campus and sees a variety of patients including university students underserved and immigrant patients. The Outpatient Care East office is located east of Columbus on the near east side serving a large urban underserved patient population.

The Outpatient Care East clinical site and Thomas Rardin Clinic site train committed family medicine residents to provide high quality, culturally competent healthcare in urban, multicultural and lower socioeconomic communities. Through innovative and inspired healthcare delivery, disease prevention, health promotion, research and leadership, we hope to diminish or eliminate racial, gender and socioeconomic healthcare outcome disparities.
