OHSU’s focus on healing, teaching and discovery — combined with our deep history in Oregon — is unique. We are the state’s only academic health center and one of the only universities in the U.S. devoted exclusively to educating doctors, dentists, nurses, pharmacists and public health professionals. We not only treat the most complex health needs in the region, we make discoveries that save lives and train leaders to address the societal issues that impede health.

Company Information

Healing, teaching and discovery

OHSU is Oregon’s only public academic health center. We are a system of hospitals and clinics across Oregon and southwest Washington. We are an institution of higher learning, with schools of medicine, nursing, pharmacy, dentistry and public health – and with a network of campuses and partners throughout Oregon. We are a national research hub, with thousands of scientists developing lifesaving therapies and deeper understanding. We are a statewide economic engine and Portland’s largest employer. And as a public organization, we provide services for the most vulnerable Oregonians, and outreach to improve health in communities across the state.

Across our missions of healing, teaching and discovery, we unite some of the world’s brightest minds in a singular vision: to rethink everything. We are creators of precision cancer medicine. We are innovators of an education model that lets each student forge a unique path. We are the top-rated health care provider in Oregon.

We are also a community — one of different colors, genders, orientations, cultures and interests. Each of us chose Oregon’s lush forests and sapphire rivers. Each of us chose OHSU’s relentless pursuit of new ideas. Together we are working toward a cause bigger than any of us: to bring health and hope to all.
