Osteopathic Medicine Recognition Month

Spotlight Our Profession

It's April, Let's Raise Awareness for Osteopathic Medicine

OMRM logo In 2016, Ohio Gov. John Kasich signed  House Bill 352, designating April as Osteopathic Medicine Recognition Month to honor the "significant contributions made by the osteopathic field of medicine to improve the health of Ohioans." State Rep. Terry Johnson, D.O., a 1991 Heritage College graduate, had  put forth the bill  as both an acknowledgment of the  40th anniversary  of the founding of this college and in appreciation of the considerable efforts of Ohio's many osteopathic physicians and organizations. April is our time to lift up our achievements and our pride in the osteopathic profession.

Please use these resources to spread the word about osteopathic medicine in Ohio.

Heritage College Fact Sheet

Ohio has long been a stronghold of osteopathic medicine. In 1975, when the Ohio governor signed legislation previously passed by the Ohio General Assembly creating our college, Ohio ranked third among U.S. states for its number of practicing D.O.s, despite having no osteopathic medical college.

Today, the Heritage College is a nationally recognized osteopathic medical school and a leader in medical education, having graduated more than 3,300 osteopathic physicians and surgeons since 1980. As of March 2017, 59 percent of these doctors practice in Ohio. Among our graduates practicing in the state, 51 percent practice in primary care specialties and primary care subspecialties and 29 percent practice in federally designated health professional shortage areas or medically underserved areas. In July 2015, we opened our third campus in Cleveland, in affiliation with Cleveland Clinic, and we welcomed the largest class in our college's history – 240 students – with 98 percent coming from Ohio. Just one year earlier, in July 2014, we opened our second campus in Dublin, with OhioHealth as our preeminent education partner for the campus.
