Our Mission, Vision and Values

W. Fred Miser, MD, MA
Residency Director
Family Medicine


The mission of The Ohio State University Family Practice Residency Program is to prepare residents for the exemplary practice of family medicine.  We are committed to meet the physical, mental, social, and spiritual heath care needs of our patients.  We are dedicated to providing an environment supportive of life-long learning and professional development.  Towards these goals we are committed to modeling the highest standards of patient care, teaching, and research.


  • Create a diversified learning environment
  • Develop a "reflective practice" model for life-long learning
  • Foster a culture that values patient care, education, and research equally


We are compassionate and sensitive to the values of our patients, their families, our community, and each other.

We constantly look for ways to deliver the highest quality health care to our patients and community and the highest quality education to our learners.

We value differences and respect the dignity of each person.

We work together to accomplish the education and training goals of the Ohio State Family Medicine Residency Program.

We are committed to the needs of the profession, community, patients, staff, students, residents, and faculty.
