Graduate Medical Education


The path toward becoming an osteopathic physician doesn’t end once a medical student receives a degree. Through the Heritage College’s many hospital partners, graduates pursue a host of residencies, from family medicine, pediatrics, emergency medicine and anesthesiology to surgery and obstetrics/gynecology, with an emphasis on primary care specialties.

Heritage College operates the Centers for Osteopathic Research and Education, an osteopathic medical education consortium that operates as an osteopathic postdoctoral training institution to sponsor residencies accredited under the American Osteopathic Association.


Annually, the HCOM Office of Institutional Assessment and Accreditation publishes match results for graduating students. See where our most recent class matched into residency programs!

Clinical Education Network

In addition to CORE, Heritage College supports ACGME-accredited residency programs through the Clinical Education Network. Recognizing that a strong GME learning environment influences the development of our medical students, the CEN strives to support and enhance the shared UME-GME clinical learning environment as a key strategy to assure the presence of strong training opportunities for medical students, residency partners and clinical faculty.


Facilitate collaboration among diverse groups of organizations that are interested in addressing the educational needs of students, residents, fellows, physicians and other health care workers at all stages of their careers (lifelong learning) by sharing resources and ideas that will advance health, osteopathic education, health delivery and health status for Ohio and beyond.



To help us define and resource the types of support our Ohio clinical education partners are seeking, we've developed a GME Support Needs Assessment to guide our process. The assessment focuses on three key areas of support: 1) New GME Development; 2) Existing GME Program Development and Support; and 3) Osteopathic Recognition.

Goals for Osteopathic Integration in Graduate Medical Education

  1. Helping hospital residency programs successfully make the transition to ACGME residencies with osteopathic recognition.
  2. Promote faculty development in osteopathic principles and practices to residency faculty through a variety of educational opportunities.
  3. Promote resident development in osteopathic principles and practices through the creation and offering of educational modules designed to highlight specialty specific information for osteopathic integration.
