All subspecialty divisions in the Department of Medicine offer strong research opportunities for fellows as part of their accredited training programs. The rich and diverse research culture in these divisions and their joint research efforts in collaboration with strong basic science departments not only provides outstanding research experiences for fellows, but also extends to resident research and scholarly opportunities.
OHSU has consistently been one of the top institutions for research funding. In 2015 OHSU had 449 active NIH projects totaling $199 million and 88 sub-projects totaling $20 million. OHSU received $356 million in grants and awards in 2014-2015.

Residents have an opportunity to participate in research activities during their elective rotations and at other times during their training. Residents may choose to work with faculty at OHSU or the Portland VA Medical Center or go off-campus (local and abroad).
Several residents have used their research to publish articles, present abstracts at clinical meetings, write a chapter in a book and more.
In addition to education and patient care the faculty at OHSU and the Portland VA Medical Center are highly involved in research. Residents have an opportunity to work with faculty on research in a variety of settings and specialties.
