Integrated Education Center
Ohio University’s Dublin Campus was established, in part, as a result of a ground-breaking donation from the Osteopathic Heritage Foundation, and allows the university to address a variety of today’s pressing healthcare issues, including the shortage of primary care physicians. When the time came to expand this campus, OU turned to Moody Nolan and local developer, The Daimler Group, to create a state-of-the-art medical education facility to house the Master of Physician Assistant Practice and other future healthcare related academic programs.

Planning for the facility places a 130-seat auditorium, library/media center, student lounge, classrooms and two labs – one of which is a wet lab devoted to simulation training and microbiology studies – and three simulation suites on the first floor. Also located on the first floor is a eight-room patient examination suite with camera systems for practical exams. The second floor provides flexible rooms that can be scaled up or down depending on class size. All classrooms and labs in the facility feature the latest A/V equipment including multiple monitors so students can see procedures being demonstrated from all areas.
The campus is located in close proximity to OhioHealth and other partnering health systems that provide clinical experiences and rotations for OU students. The Integrated Education Center also facilitates academic partnerships with Columbus State Community College, which occupies the third floor, and other Central Ohio colleges, universities and high schools.
