Policy on Outside Practice of Medicine

As required by the University Board of Trustees, all tenure track, clinical track, or associated track faculty in the College of Medicine who have a fifty percent or greater University appointment and who are providing patient care services are required, as a condition of faculty employment, to join and remain members of the Central College Practice Group (CCPG). Ohio State University Physicians (OSUP) has been designated as the CCPG.

 

Ordinarily, clinical services are provided within the facilities of the OSU Wexner Medical Center.  Occasionally, a need or opportunity may arise in which a faculty member seeks to provide patient care service in a non-OSU facility.  Requests to practice at a non-OSU facility (including Nationwide Children’s Hospital) are considered on an individual basis.  The approval process requires completion of the University Self-Insurance Program Non-OSU Location application.  The request requires the approval of the Department Chair, and is then forwarded for College approval.

 

Tenure track, clinical track, or associated track faculty in the College of Medicine who have a fifty percent or greater University appointment are not permitted to be employed by other entities for the practice of medicine.  The only exception to this policy is for faculty members who are contracted with the Veteran’s Administration.  In those cases, the percentage of the University faculty appointed is reduced proportional to the V.A. appointment.  No other exceptions are permitted.
