Alumni Association Welcomes Resident Graduates as Official Alumni 

 

As of July 1, residency and fellowship graduates are officially counted a crucial part of the Alumni Association’s nearly half a million members. Although trainees have always been considered members of the Medical Alumni Society, they were formerly ineligible for official university-wide benefits. Those days are over. Moving forward, residency and fellowship graduates are on equal footing with OSU degree holders and have access to an array of benefits.

“The successes we’ve achieved at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center could not be accomplished without our many residents and fellows, who complete their training here,” said Steven Gabbe, MD, chief executive officer of the Wexner Medical Center. “We’re thrilled that the Alumni Association has agreed to give resident and fellowship graduates the status they deserve as official alumni of our great university.”
 
Residents and fellows are not the only ones affected by the Alumni Association membership model change. The association previously served only dues-paying members, but per the spring vote, all graduates of Ohio State are now members.
 
Basic membership includes benefits such as the new career management program, access to Ohio State's online library, digital delivery of Ohio State Alumni Magazine, and invitations to select alumni programs. Graduates may also choose to become a Sustaining Member of the Association by making a tax-deductible gift of $75 or more to the Ohio State fund(s) of their choice. Sustaining members can enjoy extended benefits, including eligibility in the association’s football ticket lottery.
 
The change in membership was designed to engage more alumni and promote a culture of philanthropy among graduates. Historically, membership dues have underwritten the Association’s work, including publishing Ohio State Alumni Magazine; sponsoring clubs and societies; funding Bowl Bashes and the Student- Alumni Council; and supporting special events and programs, most of them in the Columbus area. Now, alumni wishing to become sustaining members can give to the fund of their choice. Because the new inclusive membership model reduces the need to balance the books with dues, the Association now can focus on helping all alumni become and remain connected to Ohio State and their fellow graduates.
 
The opposite page offers a guide to the kinds of memberships now available and the benefits of each. For Life Members who joined before July 1, much remains the same, including access to football tickets. Members who previously paid annual dues will now maintain similar status in the new sustaining category by making a tax-deductible donation of $75 or more to any of the thousands of funds that benefit specific areas of the university.
