"Among the most important tasks I have had as Medical Director of the OHSU General Internal Medicine Practice has been to collaboratively formulate our mission statement which reads: 'Our practice is committed to promoting health and wellbeing through patient-centered care, using evidence–based practices and measured outcomes to create an environment of excellence based on mutual respect, flexibility, education and accountability.' I personally try to practice by this motto daily."
Dr. Raj specializes in the interface between General Internal Medicine and Psychiatry. In addition to the practice of general medicine, he has developed a novel med-psych teaching clinic, working with the Internal Medicine housestaff to care for patients using a “mind-body” approach. To date, Dr. Raj has done clinical research in obesity, depression in the critically-ill and mild cognitive impairment/dementia. He relocated to Portland in 2006 after serving on the faculty at Duke University Medical Center and currently serves as Medical Director of the OHSU Internal Medicine Practice.
In his spare time, Dr. Raj enjoys spending time with his family. He is a classical trumpet player who also enjoys writing and traveling. During the fall, you can usually expect to find Dr. Raj at FedEx Field in his hometown of Washington, D.C. rooting for his beloved Redskins.
