Dedicated to achievement in surgical education, research and patient care
Established in 1914, Ohio State’s Department of Surgery has an impressive track record of producing leaders in surgery who are in demand across the country.
Surgeons at Ohio State are at the forefront of advances in surgical techniques, including many minimally invasive procedures, which offer patients faster recoveries and less postoperative pain. In addition, our active research program now ranks #4 in the nation for National Institutes of Health funding, according to the Blue Ridge Institute, with $20.9 million in NHI grants for FY2020.
Extending our commitment to integrating clinical care and research, our training also includes a mid-residency mentored research component that teaches young surgeon-scientists to think critically and problem solve while addressing pressing issues in the field. Ohio State’s unsurpassed clinical training, combined with state-of-the-art programs and the resources of a world-class medical facility, make it a highly effective, progressive and sought-after surgery department.
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.
