I have recruited a number of physicians to our department in my career, first as residency program director, recruiting residents through the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP), and for the last several years recruiting faculty members as chair of the department. As I scan the department’s roster that lists personal contact information, I derive a sense of satisfaction as I note the large number of individuals whose cellphone numbers have an area code other than 614, which is the area code for the Columbus metropolitan area. Although it’s great to see those who were “Born a Buckeye” and have chosen to remain in “The 614,” I truly value the contributions to our department from those who have resided outside central Ohio for some portion of their education and training. The heterogeneity of experience and perspective offered by those who have learned something other than “The OSU Way” truly makes us a stronger and better department, of that I am certain.
