Dr. Charles Lockwood is a nationally recognized leader who is preparing Ohio State’s medical students for careers in a rapidly changing healthcare environment and helping its faculty members commercialize their research discoveries.

Like Dr. Lockwood, the world’s best and brightest physicians and researchers are coming to Ohio State to create a new model for health care that is predictive, preventive, personalized and participatory. We call it P4 Medicine.

What attracted me to Ohio State? There is a commitment here not only to teach our medical students, conduct research and provide exemplary patient care, but to be innovators in each of these areas. I was also attracted to Ohio State because of the commitment of university officials and local, state and federal leaders to foster the creation of bio-tech and bio-informatics companies that will bring jobs to central Ohio and leverage the talent of our amazing faculty.

How am I advancing personalized health care at Ohio State? Ohio State’s vision for personalized health care begins in the classroom. Our College of Medicine’s new Lead.Serve.Inspire. curriculum emphasizes basic and clinical science, earlier clinical experiences and a collaborative approach to disease management and preventive care. Ohio State’s students will be better prepared to adapt to new medical technologies and changes in healthcare delivery, and more inclined to involve patients in their own care.

But for Ohio State... Ohio would not be producing some of the best trained physicians in the country.

Ohio State’s reputation for excellence is drawing world-class talent to Columbus. We have attracted more than 215 experts in 2 years, and 87 percent of central Ohio’s Best Doctors are Ohio State faculty. Through their skill and dedication, we are delivering on our promise to improve people’s lives, and giving central Ohioans access to the very best care.
