All areas of The Ohio State College of Medicine are driven by our mission: to improve people’s lives through innovation in research, education and patient care.

We share a common vision: to work as a team shaping the future of medicine by creating, disseminating and applying new knowledge and by personalizing health care to meet the needs of each individual.

Central to how we carry out our mission and vision are our core values: excellence, collaborating as one university, integrity and personal accountability, openness and trust, diversity in people and ideas, change and innovation, simplicity in our work, empathy and compassion, and leadership.

Our mission, vision and values represent who we are and who we strive to be. They are our commitment to you -- our students, trainees, researchers, educators, clinicians, staff, alumni and friends of The OSU College of Medicine.
