Educational programs of the Ohio university college of osteopathic medicine shall emphasize the training of osteopathic doctors who will engage in the family practice of medicine. The college shall encourage its graduates to practice medicine in those areas of the state where the greatest need exists for osteopathic physicians. Eighty percent of the students enrolled at any time in the college shall be either Ohio residents or nonresidents who have indicated their intention to practice medicine in this state for at least five years after completion of their undergraduate and post graduate medical training. Such indication of intent shall be made in writing in accordance with procedures adopted by the board of trustees of the university. The definition of "Ohio resident" shall be the same as that adopted by the board of regents for purposes of charging out-of-state tuition at state supported institutions of higher education.
