Oregon Health Workforce Institure

OHWI was created by an initiative from the Governor's Office in 2007 as a public/private partnership to support Oregon's health care industry, education institutions, and government agencies with research, strategic planning and collective impact efforts involving the health care workforce. OHWI joined the Oregon AHEC system in 2013 providing evaluation and technical services before becoming a full AHEC regional center in 2017. 

In 2019, OHWI was acquired by Pacific University. Now, OHWI at Pacific University and the OHWI AHEC program continues its mission to advance the development of a high-quality health care workforce in order to improve the health of every Oregonian through collaborative programs, research, and leadership.
