Record funding award given to Ohio University College of Osteopathic Medicine


  • is the largest gift given to a higher education institution in Ohio;
  • is the fourth largest gift in 2011 to an institution of higher education in the U.S.;
  • is the fourth largest gift ever given to a U.S. medical school; and
  • ranks among the top 50 gifts ever given to a higher education institution in the U.S.

"This is a really remarkable gift, one that will be transformational for both Ohio University and the College of Osteopathic Medicine," said Dr. Jack A. Brose, Dean of OU-COM. "We have had a very long and valuable relationship with the Osteopathic Heritage Foundations. They have been central to many of the exciting things that we have done as a medical school. They have worked with us to help us determine the direction of the college."

"This historic gift from the Osteopathic Heritage Foundations will forever change Ohio University and our College of Osteopathic Medicine," said Roderick J. McDavis, Ohio University President. "We are grateful to the Osteopathic Heritage Foundations for their commitment which will dramatically broaden our ability to improve the human condition of the people of Ohio. This gift will transform lives."

Closing the "Doctor Gap" by Building in Central Ohio

By the year 2025, some experts predict there will be a shortage of at least 124,000 physicians in the U,S,, particularly primary care physicians. "Primary care is desperately needed in this country yet the number of physicians going into primary care continues to decrease," said Dr. Brose. " We must reverse that trend."

To help turn those numbers around, OU-COM plans to expand its class size and build an extension campus in central Ohio. Mr. Vincent believes that Ohio University's plans will further enhance central Ohio's growing national reputation as a destination for medical education.

"Central Ohio has a number of highly respected health care systems. OhioHealth, Nationwide
