Our Chief Residents
Brandi Heinz, MD
I am from northeast Ohio, but lived in Wisconsin and New York for graduate and medical school. I have loved returning to the “heart of it all” for residency! I wanted a med-peds program that had strong academics on both sides with a combined continuity clinic. Our continuity clinic has an amazing multi-disciplinary staff that serves as a home base since we have it weekly throughout the year, and contributed to my decision to pursue primary care. Additionally, our residents truly are a family which is vital during tougher inpatient months. We also have med-peds providers in many specialties throughout Columbus which makes learning about transitional care in a variety of domains very feasible. Outside of work, I am often exploring breweries, coffee shops, or hiking with my husband, baby boy, pups and co-residents!
Matthew Schreier, MD
I grew up in Minnesota and have slowly traversed across the midwest for my training. I was drawn to apply to OSU / NCH by the strong categorical programs, tradition of excellence, and broad array of exposures to both common and extremely rare pathology. It was meeting the residents on my interview day and seeing how tight-knit and supportive they were that confirmed this was the right place for me, and this sentiment has only increased during my time here. The mentorship, collegiality, and focus on education are unparalleled, and you get to work with a team of brilliant colleagues that are also fun and friendly. The support structure of the med-peds residency is incredible and you truly feel like you are part of a family here. The unexpected best part of it all has been Columbus. With tons of amazing and unique food, easy access to a wide variety of outdoor activities, and the ability to get anywhere quickly with minimal traffic has quickly made Columbus a fantastic place to live. Our residency team is so excited to welcome the future of our program here in Columbus!
