the first physical facility updates of our landmark project, funded
in part through the
historic $105 million gift
in 2011 from the Osteopathic Heritage Foundations, one of the
largest private donations ever directed to higher education in Ohio.
The gift is the largest in support of primary care medical education
and is intended to address pressing health delivery issues across
the state and nation, including the shortage of primary care
physicians. The campus in Dublin is being developed in direct
response to that shortage. The new campus will admit its first
intake of 50 medical students in July 2014.
