Pediatric Educational Sites - Nationwide Children's Hospital

Nationwide Children's Hospital

With the exception of a Level III Neonatal ICU and Well Baby rotations hosted at OSUWMC, all inpatient pediatric rotations take place at Nationwide Childrens Hospital Main Campus. Our new, 12-story main hospital adds 750,000 square feet of clinical space. Residents rotate on Hospital Pediatrics for their inpatient general pediatrics experience. Subspecialty rotations include Cardiology, Gastroenterology, Hematology/Oncology, Infectious Disease, Neurology, Pulmonology, and Rheumatology/Nephrology/Endocrinology.

A majority of outpatient subspecialty clinics are also located centrally on NCH Main Campus, allowing rotating residents to continue to attend didactic sessions. Required offsite outpatient rotation for senior residents include rotations through Surgery and Sports Medicine Clinics, Adolescent Clinic, and Behavioral/Developmental Health Clinics. 

South High Primary Care Center 

South High Primary Care Center is located in a medically underserved area on the south side of town and provides comprehensive care to patients of all ages from newborns to adults. South High has achieved NCQA –Patient Centered Medical Home Level 3 status. The clinic is staffed by physicians board certified in both internal medicine and pediatrics, as well as nursing staff, a social worker, dietician, and pharmacists all dedicated to resident education and improving the health of the community. The expanded facility opened in June 2013 and has a large resident work area, twelve patient rooms, on-site laboratory, and up-to-date equipment. This innovative clinic gives you the foundation in ambulatory medicine and patient experience you need to succeed.

In general, residents spend one half day per week in clinic. They develop their own patient panel and follow those patients throughout their four years of residency. Patient encounters encompass all aspects of primary care, from well pediatric visits, adult health maintenance visits, acute ill visits, care of the medically complex and those with special health care needs. 

The clinic's dedicated physician lead and director, Dr. Megan Brundrett, orchestrates a targeted ambulatory curriculum with a weekly lecture series for residents.  Residents develop and participate in quality improvement projects, continually enhancing how we provide optimal, evidence-based care to our community.  

Medicine Educational Sites - OSUWMC

Three of the educational sites for our residents are located at the main OSUWMC complex. This central location makes it easy for residents to move between hospitals. Other off-campus educational sites are chosen to provide residents with the diversity of patient experiences essential to the internist in training. All OSUWMC training locations utilize EPIC as their electronic medical record.

University Hospital - Doan and Rhodes Hall

11-story facilities effectively make up University Hospital (UH) Main, providing care for medical, surgical and maternity patients with clinical support facilities.

  • UH serves as a secondary care hospital to the central Ohio community and a tertiary care hospital to patients from as far away as Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Kentucky and Michigan.
  • Residents rotate through general medicine services, which are attended by faculty from the Divisions of General Internal Medicine and Hospitalist Medicine.
  • Service structures are varied between a one resident, one intern service following 10 patients and one resident, two intern services responsible for the care of 16-18 patients.
  • Also housed at UH is our very popular hepatology service (GE2), comprised of a one resident, two intern team providing care for fourteen patients with primary liver disorders.

The Richard M. Ross Heart Hospital

The Ross, opened in 2004, is a 150-bed free standing facility dedicated to cardiovascular care.

  • A universal bed principal in which each patient room can transform into a critical care bed based on patient needs affords residents concentrated exposure to a wide variety of cardiac diseases and illness severity.
  • Residents provide care on a general cardiology service, acute coronary syndrome service and congestive heart failure service.
  • Experience with electrocardiology services are also available during elective or consultative rotations.

Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute

Opened in December 2014, the James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute is a transformational facility that integrates scientific research, education and innovative patient care. The third largest cancer hospital in the nation, the James boasts research and education spaces on every inpatient floor, enhancing our bench-to-bedside approach to patient care and giving patients early access to new targeted treatments and tools.

The new 21-story, 1.1 million-square-foot James Cancer Hospital provides a state-of-the-art healing environment with:

  • Inpatient floors that specialize in specific cancer subtypes to facilitate care by subspecialist multidisciplinary teams of physicians, nurses and pharmacists.
  • Advanced information technology integrating the electronic medical records into each patient’s room placing vital patient information at the fingertips of caregivers to ensure quicker, safer and more accurate patient care.
  • Translational research labs on each inpatient floor that bring physicians together with researchers to develop and deliver the most effective targeted treatments for patients.
  • A fully integrated Cancer Emergency Department to treat cancer-related medical emergencies and much more.

The $1-bilion expansion included the addition of new state-of-the-art critical care facilities hosted within the James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute, dramatically expanding beds dedicated to critical care. 

Known as 'The James' to residents, it is the clinical home of the vast majority of patients with an established diagnosis of cancer as well as those patients with benign hematologic conditions such as sickle cell anemia, thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura, idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura and other hematologic and oncologic diseases. Med-Peds Residents rotate on Hematology 1 caring for patients with lymphoma, myeloma, chronic leukemias and benign hematologic disorders as well as Oncology 1 caring for patients with solid tumors requiring inpatient care. There are opportunities for elective time and moonlighting in the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit for interested trainees.  

University Hospital East

Located approximately six miles away from the main campus, University Hospital East is a community hospital in the heart of inner city Columbus and houses two general medicine ward services.

Residents may also spend time on elective consult rotations in pulmonary, infectious disease, nephrology and cardiology. There is no overnight call at this site; nocturnal care of patients is provided by hospitalists. The spectrum of patients at OSU East is different than at OSUWMC University Hospital and gives residents opportunity to practice in the friendly atmosphere of a community hospital with the advantages of being a part of a major academic medical center.

Outpatient Sites

Residents have the opportunity to rotate through many outpatient offices during elective time.  The two most common offsite locations for subspecialty clinics are the Martha Morehouse Plaza and CarePoint East Clinic.  Residents also rotate through the Chalmers P. Wylie Columbus VA Clinic during their PGY-2 or PGY-3 years.
