What it means to be a Buckeye surgeon 

The Department of Surgery at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is an inspiring place to work. Our entire team is determined to deliver truly personalized care, pursue research that can transform lives and offer training and education opportunities that develop confident, independent surgeons.

Since 1914, our patient outcomes, professional accomplishments and awards have served as testimony to our success. Most recently, this includes our No. 6 ranking for National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding, according to the Blue Ridge Institute, with $15.2 million in NHI grants for FY2021, and our General Surgery Residency Program’s status as one of the top 10 programs in the nation for surgery, according to Doximity’s 2021-2022 Residency Navigator. Also noteworthy is our continued investment in state-of-the-art facilities and technology, which provides distinct treatment, training and research advantages. However, we believe it’s our supportive environment and spirit of innovation that makes our department so exceptional. 

To better understand what it means to be a Buckeye surgeon, we invite you to view this short video. We hope it will give you at least a glimpse into what we do, how we work as a team and why we remain so motivated, engaged and focused on the future of medicine. 

Department of Surgery: A year in review

Although the COVID-19 pandemic demanded a change in daily operations, the Ohio State Department of Surgery adapted and leaned on the strong connections already in place with other medical specialists and partners at our university, in our community and across the nation. As a result, fiscal year ’21 was still filled with significant accomplishments in research, education and patient care.
