Giving Opportunities

You can make a significant impact on our ability to train the next generation of specialists, advance patient care, and develop new knowledge through research.

We are building on a legacy of excellence that spans Richard Dillehunt, M.D., and Leo Lucas, M.D., to Lawrence Noall, M.D., and Rodney Beals, M.D., to our interim department chair, Darin Friess, M.D. Your personal gift is a vital part of this legacy and will help us advance the future of Orthopaedics.

Please make your gift to the Department of Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation by donating to one or more of the fund areas below. Each provides crucial and strategic resources for our educational, training and research missions.


Department of Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation Support Fund

Making a gift to this fund is one of the best ways to advance the education, training and research missions of the department. It is often used to capitalize on unique opportunities and provide crucial bridge funding for innovative projects.

Jung Yoo, M.D. Endowment for the Advancement of Education and Leadership in Orthopaedics

The fund is working toward establishing a professorship in Dr. Yoo’s name. This would be utilized to provide resources and protected time for faculty to devote toward student, resident and fellow education above and beyond the normal duties of the excellent faculty here at OHSU. We envision the Professorship leading to significant curriculum innovation and design over time and suspect these changes would be in Dr. Yoo’s example, published widely and developed nationwide. 

Lawrence Noall, M.D. Fund for Excellence in Orthopaedic Resident Education

Supports resident education and training.

Rodney K. Beals, M.D. Endowment for Faculty Excellence in Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation

Supports innovative and mission-focused work of exceptional faculty members. This fund honors Dr. Beals’ legacy while enabling faculty to explore new horizons to advance the field of Orthopaedics.

Orthopaedic Research Endowment

Provides essential support for basic science research in the field of Orthopaedics.
