About ohiowomen in medicine

In 2015, the Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine launched a professional networking and mentoring group for Heritage College alumni, friends, students and employees. Called ohio women in medicine, it’s the first college-affiliated branch of Ohio University’s ohiowomen initiative, a program designed to help connect women with the university, students and each other.

More than 50 women attended ohiowomen in medicine's inaugural event, which was held April 2015 as part of the Ohio Osteopathic Symposium, a five-day continuing education program for osteopathic physicians that is a collaboration of the Heritage College and the Ohio Osteopathic Association. Graduates, students, and college leaders, including Heritage College Executive Dean Kenneth H. Johnson, D.O., were among those at the launch party.

ohiowomen in medicine group is currently exploring activities to raise funds for student scholarships. Plans are also under way to establish an annual fellowship opportunity for a female medical student that would be funded by the Heritage College Society of Alumni and Friends.
