Dear Medical Student,

The rotations we offer will complement your education and provide you with an opportunity to evaluate potential residency programs.

Important elective rotation information can be found here. Please read this information carefully before completing the electronic elective rotation form. Elective rotations are not audition rotations. Our staff will notify you by email if the rotation is available and which documents need to be submitted by your school before the rotation can be confirmed.

Our hospital has served the community for more than 50 years. In 1994, we merged with the Meridia Health System, which became part of Cleveland Clinic shortly thereafter. Cleveland Clinic is our sponsoring institution. Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine — (OUHCOM) is our Osteopathic Postdoctoral Training Institution (OPTI), and the OUHCOM Medical School Cleveland Campus provides our residents with the opportunity to teach and interact with medical students. We accept audition rotations and interviews with fourth year medical students from throughout the country.

Thank you for your interest in our rotations and residency programs. Our goal is to assist you in becoming a well-educated osteopathic physician.
