We are bringing physicians together
for a healthier Ohio.

The Ohio State Medical Association (OSMA) proactively and persistently advocates for effective healthcare policy outcomes, provides professional development opportunities for physicians, and promotes useful resources that advance patient care and the medical profession. Established in 1846, OSMA is the leading voice of physicians, residents and medical students in Ohio.

“I have professionally benefited from OSMA membership through mentorship, networking, discounts on loan refinancing and access to products and services that improve my practice's performance and profitability.”

~ John Corker, MD

“OSMA is working diligently behind the scenes—making sure our collective voice is heard on timely issues for Ohio physicians.”

~ Jeffrey Leipzig, MD


Welcome to the largest physician-led organization in Ohio! 
I look forward to engaging with OSMA members to learn what OSMA membership means and how the association can better support medical practices.
