Who we are

The government relations department advocates for OHSU at the federal, state and local levels on issues regarding education, health care, health care financing, medical research, bioscience and other areas of interest to the university. We also serve as a resource for faculty, staff and the OHSU community about current public policy issues.

Contacting an elected representative or government entity

Coordination with government relations is mandatory when interacting in an official OHSU capacity with elected representatives and most government agencies. If you or your department plan to contact a government entity please call our main department line at (503) 494-6629 and one of our administrative staff will forward you to the appropriate team member.
