Emergency Medicine Education

Mission Statement: The educational mission of the Department of Emergency Medicine at Oregon Health & Science University is to develop outstanding emergency physicians with the knowledge and skills to build productive and fulfilling careers as clinicians, educators, researchers and advocates. We strive to provide this training in a diverse, inclusive, collegial educational environment where trainee wellbeing and professional development are among our utmost priorities and in alignment with the University's triple aims of healing, teaching and discovery.

Zero Tolerance for Harassment and Discrimination

OHSU Emergency Medicine Residency does not tolerate sexual harassment or discrimination in any form.  We are dedicated to the education and wellness of our trainees, and have multiple mechanisms in place for confidential and anonymous reporting of concerns.  In our residency we are committed to reporting concerns that come to our attention, fully participating in active investigations, advocating for and supporting our trainees, and transparency within our community. We are continuously working to evolve our culture, policies and practices to provide an environment where all feel safe and included. We take our roles as educators, physicians, and leaders seriously and are invested in being part of the change that needs to happen across our country to end discrimination and power dynamics that allow for harassment. We remain committed to these ideals and will continue to prioritize them as leaders in emergency medicine education.

Emergency Medicine Residency Program

Our residency program is one of the oldest in the country, with 11 new residents joining our team each year. We aim to be the best residency program for our residents through a broad range of diverse experiences, nurturing passions, fostering inclusivity, and promoting individuals of excellent character.
