That success is reflected in The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center’s climb in Doximity’s 2021-22 Residency Nativagor. Each year, Doximity, a professional medical network of physicians, conducts a national poll from board certified physicians to assess the reputation of accredited residency programs in the United States.

Based on this year’s results, seven Ohio State residency programs are considered top 25 programs by physician reputation in the country: Otolaryngology, Surgery, Ob/Gyn, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and Plastic Surgery as well as Combined Internal Medicine/Pediatrics and Pediatrics, both in partnership with Nationwide Children’s Hospital. With over 4,600 residency programs listed on Doximity across 28 specialties, nearly half of the Ohio State College of Medicine’s programs are ranked in the top 30 of search results.
