Message from the Chair

Timothy Pawlik, MD, PhD, MBA

I frequently talk about what it means to be a Buckeye surgeon because I believe we have something quite remarkable happening in The Ohio State University Department of Surgery. There is an energy here that is dynamic, inviting and always changing. It is an environment that supports big ideas, bold discoveries and a commitment to patients that is remarkably inspiring. The optimistic atmosphere you will find in our department is then amplified by the partnerships, collaboration and enthusiasm we find across our medical center, university and city.
