Who We Are

Family physicians, emergency physicans, psychologists and educators

The Department of Primary Care (DPC), one of the founding departments of the Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine, is also its largest clinical department. It represents a diverse group of family physicians, emergency physicians, psychologists and educators who teach at all levels of the medical education continuum. Most provide clinical services to the community and many are actively involved in clinical research.

DPC serves as the academic base for the office of faculty development and is the academic home for family physicians, osteopathic manipulative medicine physicians and emergency physicians, who serve as preceptors for the Heritage College students in their clinical training years at Centers for Osteopathic Research and Education (CORE) sites throughout Ohio.

Departmental faculty serve as preceptors for students at all levels, from the youngest Phase I student to PGY III family medicine residents. Many serve as course coordinators, block team leaders and facilitators in the Heritage College’s two curricular tracks.
