Please contact the Office of Graduate Medical Education if you do not have your OHSU institutional Drug Enforcement Administration, or DEA, number.
Please note: This DEA number is for use only at OHSU Hospital and OHSU clinics, including satellite clinics and the VA. It is not legal to use your institutional DEA number at Legacy Portland Hospitals, Providence St. Vincent Hospital, or any other outside institution or clinic.
OHSU patients may take the prescriptions written by residents/fellows using their institutional DEA numbers to any pharmacy they wish. Because the institutional DEA number is not your personal DEA number, there is no DEA certificate. Also, please note that your DEA number is different from your medical license number.
For writing prescriptions you will also need the institutional NPI number. To obtain this, please go to https://nppes.cms.hhs.gov/NPPES/StaticForward.do?forward=static.npistart
The GME Office requires that you provide your NPI with us, once you get it. We populate Epic with your DEA and NPI numbers for ease of prescription writing.
