About the Program
The Ohio State University Department of Internal Medicine provides a unique and dynamic learning environment for residents, stressing the importance of clinical excellence and dedication to scholarship. We receive some of the most medically complex cases across Ohio and neighboring states, and the volume of patients we treat gives each resident a rich and diverse training experience. Despite the challenge of providing such care, Ohio State benefits from true camaraderie between residents and faculty that focus on excellent patient care and resident education. And, our residents learn from one another as our medical teams often comprise members of our categorical, primary care, Internal Medicine/Pediatrics, Emergency Medicine/Internal Medicine, and Physician Scientist Training Program residencies.
Aside from clinical excellence, Ohio State provides countless opportunities for scholarly achievement. Whether through our structured Research Track or faculty-mentored projects, our residents consistently publish in high impact peer-reviewed journals and present their work at major national and international conferences. We also provide a comprehensive Leadership Curriculum which gives each resident a toolset for navigating the nuanced challenges that doctors will face throughout their careers. Finally, we are dedicated to achieve all these goals while maintaining a culture of wellness. With the guidance of our Wellness Committee we ensure our residents can enjoy life outside of medicine, and make some of the most meaningful friendships and memories of their lives.
Leadership Education in Advancing Diversity (LEAD) at OSU
The Ohio State University Department of Medicine Lead Program is a 10-month longitudinal leadership program for residents and fellows across the Department of Internal Medicine at The Ohio State University. It focuses on developing leadership and scholarship skills while addressing diversity, equity, and inclusion in medicine. The program aims to produce future leaders in academic medicine dedicated to DEI and improving the medical culture. Participants engage in workshops, quality improvement projects, and mentorship to enhance their leadership abilities and understanding of DEI. Through this program they will be equipped to drive positive change and promote inclusivity in their medical careers.

LEAD @ OSU is a 10-month longitudinal program for the Department of Medicine residents and fellows that provides leadership training and mentorship in creating scholarly works around equity, diversity, and inclusion topics. It consists of monthly, 2-hour evening sessions from 5-7pm. The expectation is that participants will attend a minimum of 8 of the 10 sessions. The first hour is devoted to interactive discussion-based lectures on equity, diversity and inclusion topics led by leaders in and outside of the Ohio State University community. The second hour is spent working in mentored, small groups on developing scholarly presentations, culminating in the annual Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Forum to showcase the scholarly works completed.
Mentors in Internal Medicine
Faculty mentors appreciate that time is allotted within the residency for research, quality improvement and/or educational scholarship and are eager to help. Trainees value the open access to mentors, role models, division heads and fellowship program directors.
