Group and Classroom Instruction
In an effort to educate the public about the rich health sciences history of Central Ohio and our collections, the Center offers tours of our facilities, classroom instruction, and presentations. If you are interested in any of these services, please contact us for more information.
Research Assistance and Consultation
The Medical Heritage Center is dedicated to providing research assistance and consultation through our three collections of rare books, archives and artifacts.
All collections are open to the public but do not circulate and must be used in our supervised reading room.
Fifteen minutes of research assistance will be provided without charge. Persons and businesses who need additional research service will be billed at the following rates:
- Research Services, Personal/Nonprofit: $25 per hour
- Research Services, Corporate/Profit: $100 per hour
Programming and Outreach
The Medical Heritage Center’s programming series is comprised of four annual lectures: the James V. Warren Memorial Lecture; the Friends of Nursing History Lecture; the Heritage Lecture; and, the John C. Burnham Lecture in the History of Medicine.
The Center hosts various special events, exhibits, displays, and traveling exhibits and is also focused on outreach through partnerships with other OSU departments and external organizations.
