Dotter Interventional Institute


The Dotter Interventional Institute was established by the Oregon State Board of Higher Education in April 1990, as an independent, freestanding division of the Oregon Health & Science University School of Medicine. The Institute was charged with developing a multidisciplinary program in interventional therapy with emphasis on interventional education, research, and patient care.


  • Educate nurses, technologists and physicians in selected techniques of vascular and interventional therapy.
  • Educate referring physicians, and other healthcare providers and insurers concerning the cost effective advantages of minimally invasive interventional therapy.
  • Educate the public regarding the availability and advantages of minimally invasive interventional therapy, especially those related to minimizing costs and decreasing time of recovery.


  • Develop new and improve existing clinical tools and techniques in interventional therapy at the Dotter Interventional Institute Research Laboratory.

Patient Care:

  • Provide the highest quality interventional treatment to patients in an environment that ensures their comfort and well-being.
  • Serve as a regional and national resource by advising other interventionalists, and by accepting patient referrals in the management of difficult interventional cases.
