Many of our faculty and residents are active both locally and internationally in medical outreach. You can contact Doctor Howie Werman
for information about getting involved with any of these projects.
Doctors Howie Werman and Rick Nelson regularly volunteer their time with the Physicians Free Clinic
, which is operated by the Columbus Medical Association and Foundation
. The Clinic meets every Monday night at the Columbus Health Department
from 6P to 10P and sees patients with urgent primary care needs as well as specialty surgical and medical care needs. Students from the OSU College of Medicine first and second year classes regularly work with the faculty in the Clinic.
