The Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine, in partnership with the Osteopathic Heritage Foundation, has established a tiered endowment structure that provides faculty at any stage in their research career with support for professional growth and success in collaborative research. Each tier acknowledges the value of faculty members who have attained various levels of research experience, contributing to the college’s strategic aims of advancing collaborative research and training, and allows for the possibility of advancement through the series of available tiers.
