The OHSU Continuing Professional Development Clinical Star awards are given to those with exemplary patient experience scores in the top quartile of all OHSU providers. The recipients' patient care epitomizes OHSU’s core values of quality and service excellence.
Portland Monthly Magazine's Top Doctors are identified by their peers in response to the question: “To whom would you trust with the care of a loved one?” By being recognized as a Top Doc, these clinicians represent the top 5% of all providers that were voted for. OHSU Continuing Professional Development would like to acknowledge those OHSU providers who have not only been recognized for this distinction once, but repeatedly.
These awards recognizes specific projects that have made a difference at OHSU.
