The economic impact of medical education on the state of Ohio and our region will be the focus of a presentation by Dr. Jeffrey P. Gold, UT chancellor and executive vice president for biosciences and health affairs, and dean of UT College of Medicine and Life Sciences.

Gold will present “Economic Impact of Medical Education in Ohio and in Northwest Ohio: The Broader Picture” at 10 a.m. Monday, May 7, in the Interprofessional Immersive Simulation Center in the Collier Building on the UT Health Science Campus.

This work, recently completed by the firm Tripp-Umbach, looks on the impact of Ohio’s medical schools on the economy, jobs, tax revenue and other key economic metrics. These factors have been systematically studied for more than 10 years, all demonstrating important trends, Gold said.

Members of the Ohio Council of Medical School Deans, of which Gold is the chair, present economic impact information to our legislators to their communities on a regular basis.
