Mission of the Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine

The Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine educates physicians committed to practice in Ohio, emphasizes primary care, engages in focused research, and embraces both Appalachian and urban communities. Integral to this mission, our college community commits itself to: provide a clinically integrated, learning-centered, osteopathic medical education continuum for students, interns, residents, and fellows; embrace diversity and public service; and improve the health and well-being of underserved populations.

Tenets of Osteopathic Medicine

The American Osteopathic Association’s House of Delegates approved the Tenets of Osteopathic Medicine as policy which follows the underlying philosophy of osteopathic medicine.

     1. Each person is a unit; the person is a unit of body, mind and spirit.

     2. The body is capable of self-regulation, self-healing and health maintenance.

     3. Structure and function are reciprocally interrelated.

     4. Rational treatment of patients is based upon an understanding of the basic principles of body unity, self-regulation, and the interrelationship of structure and function.
