Thank you Oregonians for supporting OHSU in our pursuit to translate complex information into better health since 1887. Because of you we have been able to build a world-class academic health center where healing, teaching and discovery come together every day to improve the health of people in Oregon — and around the world.


In October 1887, the University of Oregon established a department of medicine in Northwest Portland. Since those first building blocks were laid down, the university has dramatically expanded both in form and function, but its core values and mission remain the same.

Today, OHSU is the sum of our community's 125 years of support and commitment to creating a world-class academic health center. Over the next year, OHSU will hold various events to say "thank you." Together we will look back at where OHSU came from. And, we will look ahead to the future of health care and research, and the best practices in training our next generation of health care providers.


We want to show our appreciation with the following upcoming events (visit the bottom of this page for information about past events). ________________________________________________________________________________________________
