Dr. Jacoby November 2021

Dean David Jacoby, M.D., welcomes you to the OHSU School of Medicine.

Dr. Jacoby is an accomplished educator, clinician and researcher. Following his training, he spent 13 years on the faculty at Johns Hopkins, where he served as research director for the division of pulmonary and critical care, and was Firm Faculty, a designation reserved for faculty most involved in house staff education.

Dr. Jacoby came to OHSU as chief of pulmonary and critical care in 2003, and led the expansion of that division in patient care, research and education. He is professor of medicine and of chemical physiology and biochemistry and director of the M.D./Ph.D. Training Program. He became interim chair of the Department of Medicine in 2017 and permanent chair in 2018, before OHSU President Danny Jacobs appointed him dean in December 2022, succeeding Dr. Sharon Anderson.
