Training today's family physicians for tomorrow
Welcome to The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center Family Medicine Residency. Through our program, you will be exposed to cutting-edge technology and specialty rotations at our large academic health center, while concurrently receiving community-based training at our unopposed community-based hospital, Ohio State East Hospital. Pediatric training happens through our partnership with Nationwide Children's Hospital, a nationally renowned pediatric health system. Our program ensures you have the training and support to be well-prepared for any type of practice.
There are two outpatient centers where our residents see family medicine patients. Family Medicine Thomas Rardin is located next to the Ohio State campus and provides a mixture of underserved care along with serving faculty and students from the university. Our other outpatient office is Outpatient Care East, which is located just outside of Downtown Columbus and has an urban setting, serving a larger proportion of the underserved population. First-year residents all have the same curriculum and rotations, while second- and third-year residents work out of their primary outpatient clinics. While more alike than different, differences between training locations can be found via the links to the left
Both locations offer an excellent training environment to learn full-spectrum, patient-centered primary care. All residents attend didactics weekly at Rardin. 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.
