Resident Research

Research Opportunities for Residents


Excellent opportunities are available to our housestaff in basic science labs and translational and clinical research.  These are offered through our NIH sponsored Oregon Clinical and Translational Research Institute and includes both opportunities for research projects and also more formalized training through our long standing Human Investigations Program.  This outstanding program offers a combination of coursework, mentored projects, and academic survival skills aimed at training the next generation of clinical and translational researchers. 

OHSU is also particularly strong in Medical Informatics and Clinical Epidemiology, and within this Department houses the OHSU Evidence Based Practice Center.  There are currently five institutional K awards at OHSU (K12) and approximately 80 individual career development awards.

Divisions in the Department may also accept residents through the ABIM Research Pathway, with additional research experience being added to the fellowship portion of training, which the trainee enters after only two years of residency training.  This is well suited to highly motivated residents with a strong commitment to a career in academic medicine.
