How you can help
The Department of Surgery’s mission is to deliver high quality patient care, contribute to innovations in medicine through basic and translational research and clinical outcome studies, and to educate medical students and postgraduate trainees to insure an adequate supply of surgeons for the future.
Numerous funds have been established by generous donors. These contribute significantly to the Ohio State Department of Surgery’s ability to advance its mission and vision. Please consider one of these existing funds or visit our Ways to Give page.
The importance of philanthropy
Surgeons are known for saving lives through operations, but they are also impacting thousands of people through groundbreaking research. It is often difficult for young surgeon-scientists to find funding for early-stage research, which is why generous donations can make a big difference in getting promising research off the ground.
