Searching OHSU

Here are some methods and strategies to search for content on the OHSU website.

Use enough words

When entering search terms, be as specific as possible. If you use only one word, like “email” or “policy” in your search, you’ll get a larger number of generic results. Instead, try adding a little more description, like “facilities logistics email” or “patient care policy.”

Refine your search

The left column of the search results page will help you narrow down results with a couple filters by:

  • Topic
  • Content type (e.g. document, news)

Look for promoted content

Some searches bring up recommended results at the top, people results, related people in the right column and related news at the bottom that may be relevant to what you're looking for. Be sure to look in all columns and scan to see if anything looks like it might be what you're looking for.
