You'll also experience the advantages that come with being on the campus of a major university — world-class facilities and ever-growing research laboratories, abundant interprofessional and service opportunities, and numerous extracurricular and academic activities.

Caring For Our Neighbors

The Osteopathic Heritage Foundation gift that gave our college its name also led to the expansion of the Heritage Community Clinic. Staffed by our faculty physicians, it's open to southeastern Ohio residents who need care the most, and provides free and low-cost health screenings, immunizations, diabetes treatment and other specialty care.

Each year our students log more than 4,500 volunteer hours at local schools, clinics, nursing homes and other community sites throughout the region, gaining firsthand insight into primary care, and experiencing the difference they can make in the lives of individuals and across whole communities.



Learning with students across all three campuses

Link Up From Anywhere

Our campus sites are spread across Ohio, but here, your learning environment isn't defined by distance or location. With our interactive videoconferencing system, you can study with world-renowned physicians, participate in lectures across the state, access the resources of affiliate health care systems and connect to your fellow students in Dublin and Cleveland.
