DEA Number

All residents/fellows appointed through the Office of Graduate Medical Education are issued an OHSU institutional DEA number, unless they have their own. Please note: This DEA number is for use only at OHSU Hospital and clinics, including satellite clinics and the VAMC. It is not legal to use it at Legacy, St. Vincent, or any other outside institution or clinic.

Because this DEA number is not the personal number of the resident/fellow, there is no DEA certificate that is issued to them.When applying for future jobs, residents/fellows should indicate that they do nothave an individual DEA number.

All residents/fellows are also issued an institutional NPI number to use on prescriptions so their patients' insurance can be billed appropriately.
