Research with OHSU Health Affiliates

OHSU continues to add and enhance affiliate relationships to the greater OHSU Health system. As a result of this expansion, OHSU is now working to sustainably expand clinical research activities to our affiliates. This expansion opens research opportunities to a broader population of Oregonians to participate in clinical research studies.

Our Affiliate Partners:

  • Hillsboro Medical Center
  • Adventist Health Portland
  • Columbia Memorial Hospital

If you are an OHSU researcher and interested in opening your clinical research study at one of the OHSU Health Affiliates, the first step is to complete the OHSU Health Affiliate Research Interest Form.

OHSU Health Affiliate Research Interest Form:

To complete the form you will need:

  • Your OHSU IRB number
  • Your protocol and consent form
  • Details about what activities you would like to conduct at the affiliate site

The information you provide is reviewed by the Research Affiliates Committee to determine if adequate resources are available at the site(s) and if there is capacity and interest in engaging in the study.  The time for review and approval can vary depending on the site(s) and details of the request. Following review by all applicable offices you will be provided with instructions and next steps if the study is to move forward. If you have questions about the process please contact the Affiliate Research Program Manager.
