Celebration of Educational Scholarship
Plan to celebrate with the Medical Education Scholarship and Faculty Teaching Scholars Certificate Recipients of The Ohio State University's College of Medicine on Nov. 14 at the Biomedical Research Tower.

This year's celebration, hosted by the Center for Education and Scholarship, features a morning of educational research posters, podium presentations and recognition of our Faculty Teaching Scholars Program Certificate recipients, followed by a luncheon keynote address titled "Scholarship From Curriculum Design" by Larry Gruppen, PhD. The afternoon will include Lead.Serve.Inspire faculty teaching skills workshops and an "L.S.I Pilots" panel discussion.

Medical Education
At Ohio State, we are continuously seeking to improve medical education to meet the needs of our state, nation and world. It means that Ohio State educators are constantly looking for innovative ways to help you become the best physician you can be.

We offer you two choices of curricula during Med 1 and Med 2, allowing you to select the method of learning that works best for you - the Integrated and Independent Study pathways.

You will gain clinical experiences early in your first year working with a faculty member seeing patients and through the Clinical Assessment and Problem Solving (CAPS) course. You will work with a community service agency in your first through the community project.

Outside the curriculum, you will have many opportunities for patient interaction and skill building through The Columbus Free Clinic, La Clinica Latina, the Asian Health Initiative Free Clinic, and the Physician Free Clinic as well as through the many interest groups. Visit the "Student Experience" tab for more details about extracurricular activities available to you.
