Meet Our Alumni

We are proud of our residents who represent us across the nation following completion of training. They share the qualities and values of intelligence, compassion, integrity, ambition and a commitment to lifelong learning and caring for others. Whether their interests culminate in them pursuing an academic position, private practice, the public sector, or other settings, we appreciate and remember that they began their careers as psychiatrists at a special place, The Ohio State University. In addition to feedback from our alumni across the country, many of our former residents remain at OSU and will be happy to share their experiences and reasons for joining our faculty.


Areum Kim, MD, ‘21

  • Current Position: Independence, Ohio, Private Practice for adults, teens, and children

    “I loved training at OSU both for my adult and child experiences. I felt the work load, education, and colleagues all contributed positively to my education and training. Working with NCH for Fellowship was also a very easy transition and an equally good experience for education and growth.”

Hilary Linzie, MD ‘21

  • Current Position: Las Vegas, NV at UNLV School of Medicine

    “Finishing residency at OSU was bittersweet. I was trained by the most intelligent, dedicated, and kind physicians I’ve ever met. Our training is top-notch and robust, covering all aspects of comprehensive psychiatric care at a large academic medical center. I feel fully prepared to treat any patient I encounter.”

Mike Finneran, MD ‘20

  • Current Position: Veterans Affairs, Chillicothe, OH

    “I am very thankful to have had the opportunity to train at OSU. Now that I am practicing independently, I have realized how valuable it was to have trained under faculty that were so knowledgeable and passionate about teaching. I feel very well prepared for my current role as an outpatient general practice psychiatrist. The fun and friendships made during residency I will value forever.”

    “I appreciate the flexibility of the program, and the support of my attendings and peers, to explore multiple interests throughout residency to really determine what I liked and felt most passionate about. I remain close friends with people I met at OSU and still benefit from their knowledge and guidance as an attending.”

Igor Tatarintsev, DO ‘16

  • Current Position: Veterans Affairs, Pittsburgh, PA

    “I enjoyed my four years at OSU very much. We were able to raise little kids during residency because it’s an affordable city and had excellent medical training. I spent many months working daily with inpatient and consult service attendings who were excellent and patient teachers.”

Samuel Weber, MD ‘15
