About Family Medicine

Putting the 'family' in Family Medicine

OHSU Family Medicine is focused on family health. We provide preventive, primary and specialty care for you, your children, your spouse, your parents and your grandparents. We provide all that family medicine has to offer - from maternity care through geriatrics. Our clinics are home to more than 120,000 patients every year, but despite the large number, our physicians, nurses and other clinic staff know their patients - and their families - by name.

Our patient care is among the nation's best, ranked in the top 10 among the nation's medical school family medicine departments by U.S. News and World Report.

Our mission

To serve our patients and communities through excellence in clinical care, education, research, and leadership in Family Medicine.

Our vision

To be a supportive and collaborative organization that transforms primary care and inspires future leaders by demonstrating the best in Family Medicine.

Patient-centered primary care

OHSU Family Medicine Clinics are all Certified Patient-Centered Primary Care Homes. That means we have been recognized for the quality of our work, and our commitment to making sure your care is all about you. As a Patient-Centered Primary Care Home, we will:

  • Put you at the center of your care plan
  • Respect your unique needs, culture, values and preferences
  • Work as a team of providers, medical assistants and care coordinators to get you the services you need, when you need them
  • Think of the whole picture when it comes to your well-being
  • Offer after-hours help and alternatives to the Emergency Department
