"Care is the heart of everything we do at the Heritage College. It is what binds us and sets us apart..."

-Heritage College Executive Dean Kenneth Johnson, D.O.

Welcome to the Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine’s Clinical Training and Assessment Center, or CTAC. CTAC plays a key role in the Heritage College mission “... to provide a clinically integrated, learning-centered, osteopathic medical education continuum for students, interns, residents, and fellows...”

Specifically, CTAC provides a training and assessment area, enabling medical students, interns, residents, and other healthcare clients a place to enhance their clinical skills in a safe and supportive environment. In association with the Standardized Patient (SP) Program, the students learn and practice history-taking and physical exam skills in patient examination rooms outfitted with high-quality medical equipment.

CTAC relies on the Standardized Patient Program to provide the students with valuable practice of clinical skills prior to entering their clinical rotations. This program could not function without the service and dedication of our standardized patients. We thank you in advance for your interest in working with medical students, residents, and other healthcare providers to maximize their communication and assessment skills.
