The year 1997 was a turning point for OSU-COM. With the School of Biomedical Sciences
established on campus, and plans for future graduate programs on the horizon, the
institution was renamed OSU Center for Health Sciences with the College of Osteopathic
Medicine under the OSU-CHS umbrella. OSU-COM also held its first White Coat Ceremony,
the Center for Advanced Medical Education (C.A.M.E) opened and the atrium connecting
the buildings on campus was named Founders Hall.
