Training today's family physicians for tomorrow

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, you will be exposed to cutting edge techniques on specialty rotations while enjoying the dedicated teaching of family medicine physicians on an "unopposed" inpatient service at a community hospital. You will be part of an ever-changing, growing family. Our Family Medicine Residency offers you a choice of two tracks for your professional and personal development: University and Urban.

The Urban Track is integrated on several levels with the University Track. Many of the rotations are the same for both tracks. Continuity patients (your practice) are seen at the urban site (Outpatient Care East) during second and third years of residency. During the first year, continuity patients are seen at Rardin Family Practice. Residents in either track have the opportunity to pursue their MBA or MPH at Ohio State during their residency training in the academic focus. The program is in complete compliance with the ACGME duty hours rules. Our focus is on the well-being of the resident with the goal of providing the best residency education available.
