University Track


Our University-Based Residency emphasizes family medicine with specialty rotations at the Wexner Medical Center at The Ohio State University, a nationally ranked academic medical center. Our inpatient services at University Hospital East, allow family practice residents to develop their clinical and technical skills in a supportive environment that fosters the development of life-long learning processes necessary for every family doctor. Residents will also train at the nearby Rardin Family Medicine Center, where faculty and community family physicians mentor and teach our residents in the office setting.

The Ohio State University Family Medicine Residency Program provides a unique training experience, balancing the rigors of an academic program with the environment of a traditional family medicine. As an integral part of the Wexner Medical Center at The Ohio State University, our residents are clinical instructors in the Ohio State College of Medicine, providing the opportunity to teach medical students and other health care professionals elements of primary care, physical examination skills, and doctor-patient relationship building. Our academic focus provides opportunities for research and scholarship unparalleled in community programs. We have the best of all possible scenarios!

Additional Training Sites: Our residents also spend four months at Nationwide Children’s Hospital- one of the top children's hospitals in the nation. We provide experiences in diverse urban, suburban, and rural Ohio settings. Residents care for their patients at the Patient Centered Medical Home Rardin Family Practice, while providing care at both the Wexner Medical Center and OSU Hospital East.
