The Ohio State University College of Medicine residency programs are among the best in the nation, according to Doximity’s 2023-2024 Residency Navigator. Each year, Doximity conducts a national poll from board certified physicians to assess the reputation of accredited residency programs in the U.S. Based on this year’s results, we are excited to announce that eight Ohio State residency programs are considered a top 25 program by physician reputation in the country: Pediatrics, Pediatric Neurology, Combined Internal Medicine/Pediatrics (all three in partnership with Nationwide Children’s Hospital), OBGYN, Otolaryngology, Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, Plastic Surgery, and General Surgery. With over 4,600 residency programs listed on Doximity across 28 specialties, we are proud to have nearly half of our programs ranked in the top 30 of search results.

Prospective trainees will work directly with the program to which they are applying to make arrangements for virtual interviews.
