Ohio State is attracting the world’s best and brightest experts to accelerate research findings and quickly translate them to care.
20 Faces of Ohio State
Some of the faculty members at Ohio State are home-grown, having completed their medical degrees or specialty training at Ohio State before joining the faculty here.
Others were attracted to this Midwest hub of innovation by the unique opportunities offered at one of the nation’s leading academic medical centers: the breadth of resources and expertise, the support to develop and world-class programs, a culture that encourages and rewards collaboration, an organization with clear vision and leadership.
All are setting the standard in their fields, attracting research dollars, improving patients’ lives in innovative ways, and garnering the attention of the world’s top students who compete to train with them.
While we take great pride in the accomplishments and unlimited potential of these 20 exceptional individuals, they are a sample of the more than 3,400 physicians and life scientists at our Medical Center whose wisdom and works are improving lives in our city, state, nation and around the world.
