Northwest Native American Center of Excellence

The Northwest Native American Center of Excellence at OHSU will comprehensively and sustainably address the health care needs of all people by increasing Native American voice in the U.S. health professions workforce. NNACOE is made possible through a five-year grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the OHSU School of Medicine and the support of all 43 Pacific Northwest tribes. Learn more about NNACOE.


Diversity is a catalyst for creativity and innovation. A diverse community of faculty, students and staff immeasurably enriches our learning environment and helps us move closer to a future in which our community of health care providers mirrors the diversity of our patients. We will build and sustain a multicultural community because this is a reflection of the fundamental values of the OHSU School of Medicine.  We want to increase diversity because it is the right thing to do and because it makes us stronger and better able to provide for patients.
