"Two important things drew me to OHSU: the opportunity to lead a superb team of health and research professionals and the chance to impact women’s health throughout the Pacific Northwest and beyond."
Dr. Caughey is the Chair of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Associate Dean for Women’s Health Research and Policy, OHSU School of Medicine. He is nationally recognized as a dedicated clinician, accomplished educator and prolific researcher. In his clinical practice, Dr. Caughey has a special interest in Diabetes in Pregnancy. His research interests over the past decade have focused on utilizing a broad array of methodologies including standard biostatistical techniques as well as decision- and cost-effectiveness analysis to address questions in obstetrics and maternal-fetal medicine regarding post-term pregnancy, preeclampsia, and diabetes in pregnancy, obesity and weight gain, as well as prenatal diagnosis. Dr. Caughey grew up in South King County in Washington, and trained in Boston and San Francisco. He recently returned to the Pacific Northwest and to OHSU, in particular, because of the opportunity to lead a talented department and to impact women’s health across Oregon.
