World-Renowned Institution

The Ohio State University was one of the first medical centers in the country to combine five neuroscience-related specialties into a single, integrated program. Our Neurological Institute is a center for both state-of-the-art treatment and world-class education. We bring together neurologists, neurosurgeons, psychiatrists and physical medical and rehabilitation specialists to offer unique expertise for a range of physical and mental conditions. Our leaders are known and respected internationally.

World-Class Clinical Training

The most important strength of the neurosurgery residency program is the exceptional clinical volume. Graduates of our program typically are in the top 5% nationally for operative volume. Residents are exposed to complex cases early during their training and graduate capable of managing any neurosurgical problem they will encounter in practice.

Transformative Research

In the past year alone, our researchers obtained funding totaling $7 million. We’re proud of the six research laboratories affiliated with the Neurological Institute. Ohio State’s commitment to research is unsurpassed, as shown by our investment in current and future medical research facilities. We offer numerous opportunities for graduate students to conduct research, and our varied postdoctoral research opportunities bring promising researchers from across the globe to our campus.

Campus Life and Culture

We offer our medical and graduate students a rich and diverse campus experience with almost unlimited opportunities to personalize their education and career paths. We recognize the importance of having a good balance between school, work and life. Our students and faculty love living in Columbus. It’s vibrant, diverse and the 14th largest city in the U.S.

We Value Diversity

Our commitment to diversity and inclusion is seen through our many programs designed to level the playing field. We want to eliminate healthcare disparities by increasing the number of medical students and residents who are underrepresented in medicine, such as African Americans, Latinos and Native Americans. Our implicit bias training addresses the unconscious bias that impacts admission and training of students from certain racial and gender groups.

Investment in the Future

As medicine continues to evolve, we constantly seek ways to keep pace and anticipate challenges in the future. That’s why we’ve made a $3 billion investment in our strategic plan, a multifaceted approach to growth in research, education and culture, among other areas. Framework 2.0 is a flexible and adaptable blueprint for supporting this growth.
