Our Diversity Mission

The mission of the Ohio State University Medical Center is to improve people's lives through innovation in research, education and patient care. Diversity is central to our academic medical center mission and serves as a driver of institutional excellence.

We celebrate and learn from our diversity and we value individual differences. We see diversity as the uniqueness each of us brings to achieving our shared mission and goals. We recognize and value different perspectives, characteristics, experiences and attributes of each individual in creating an environment where we thrive on and benefit from our difference. A diverse culture optimizes the Medical Center's ability to provide innovative and evidence-based health care personalized for each individual by supporting a greater understanding and appreciation for each individual's genetic makeup, behavior, experience, and beliefs.
