OHSU’s Family Medicine graduate program has ranked #1 in the country for the third year in a row, according to U.S. News & World Report.

The ranking is based on the residency program’s reputation, research, faculty resources, and student characteristics, which makes the ranking a reflection of all three mission areas in the department – education, research, and clinical.

“Our staff, programs, and clinics, all work together with faculty to make this magic occur,” says Vice Chair of Education Fran Biagioli, M.D. “We have a wonderful team and this effort is evident nationally.” 

The Department of Family Medicine is also celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. In an interview, former Chair Robert Taylor, M.D., reflected that “we have long been ranked very highly – in the top 5 or so – by U.S. News & World Report, and that just doesn’t happen by accident. It happens as a result of a lot of hard work.”

Anita Taylor, M.A., Ed., former Family Medicine faculty and assistant dean of student development adds, “It’s the department employees and faculty who make these kinds of awards possible. It’s brought our department into great national status and prestige.”
