Office of Public and Professional Affairs
The Office of Public and Professional Affairs supports the Heritage College's mission by strategically building relationships and raising the medical school's profile. Our mission includes helping the college attract students, talent and funding; strengthening our visibility with key audiences; and fostering, enhancing and protecting the college's reputation.
Advancement and Development
Creating the future of medical education and patient care requires vision, careful planning, partnerships and investment. These efforts can take the form of an endowed scholarship or named spaces in our facilities.
We work with communications professionals internally and externally to tell the Heritage College story. We field media inquiries, produce publications, administrate the college website and social media platforms, photograph special events and provide branded templates.
In coordination with the Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine Society of Alumni and Friends, we work to engage alumni in the mission of the college through outreach and events.
We serve as a liaison between the Heritage College and state and federal lawmakers, as well as other government entities. Chief Public Affairs Officer P.J. Murphy spearheads this effort, and you can contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org or 740.593.4528
