Karen and Cliff Deveney Endowed Professorship

An exciting fundraising project is underway to honor Drs. Karen and Cliff Deveney with an Endowed Professorship in their names. The Karen and Cliff Deveney Professor of Surgical Education will become a reality when we successfully raise the $1 million needed to endow the professorship.

Karen and Cliff have been at OHSU for over 20 years and have been leaders in the department since their arrival. Karen has taken the OHSU general surgery residency program from a good program to one of the most respected and robust residencies in the country. For more than a quarter century, Cliff has been the cornerstone of complex upper GI and bariatric surgery at OHSU and the Portland VA, where he was chief for 15 years.

There can be a no more fitting tribute to the contributions Cliff and Karen have provided over the decades than to create an enduring legacy with a Professorship in their names. We invite you to join us with a donation or pledge to make this endowed professorship a reality and honor two of our own.
