Advancing physician and patient health through expertise and giving.
We are the philanthropic arm of the Ohio State Medical Association (OSMA).
Funded by generous donations from physicians, corporations, grants, and other benefactors,
we work to advance the healthcare system and impact overall public health in Ohio.
To promote excellence in Ohio’s healthcare by supporting the medical community
and creating opportunities that improve public health.
EDUCATE and develop the next generation of physicians through scholarships, mentoring and opportunities for young physicians
CHAMPION physician well-being, helping us care for our caregivers.
Initiatives to Support:
Help us advance the healthcare system and impact overall public health in Ohio. We believe that the practice of medicine functions best when it helps make Ohio communities healthier, and when physician leaders and mentors are well-supported.
