About Oregon Health & Science University
OHSU’s singular focus on improving health starts with Oregonians and has global impact. We are the only academic health center in Oregon, but we’re also nationally distinct as a university dedicated solely to advancing health sciences. This allows us to concentrate resources on research to prevent and cure disease, on education that prepares physicians, dentists, nurses and other health professionals to succeed in an evolving health care environment, and on patient care that incorporates the latest knowledge and discoveries.
Based in Portland, we have 16,000 employees, operate the top-ranked adult and children’s hospitals in Oregon, and secure competitive research funding of more than $400 million a year. As a public organization, we provide community outreach and services for Oregon’s most vulnerable populations.
