Division of Hospital Medicine

The Division of Hospital Medicine (DHM) is part of the Department of Medicine at Oregon Health & Science University and encompasses the Sections of Hospital Medicine at the University (OHSU campus), Tuality Community Hospital, and the Portland VA Medical Center. The University Section is further comprised of the inpatient Medicine Teaching Service (MTS), the inpatient Clinical Hospitalist Service (CHS), and the outpatient Preoperative Medicine Clinic (PMC).

Our faculty strive to provide quality, compassionate and evidence based patient centered care. We are engaged in service, research and education throughout the institution. We are closely affiliated with the OHSU Internal Medicine Residency Program, and our faculty actively participate in multiple ways through the OHSU School of Medicine MD Program including classroom-based learning and 3rd/4th year clinical experiences.

Our services

Clinical Hospitalist Service

The Clinical Hospitalist Service (CHS) consists of attending faculty and advanced practice providers. Learners can also elect to rotate on this service. Faculty on the CHS see patients either independently, in co-management with select services or in medical consultation to other services.

Medicine Teaching Service

The Medicine Teaching Service, an inpatient cornerstone of OHSU’s Internal Medicine Residency Program, includes five house staff/student wards teams, each supervised by a clinician educator. Included among teaching faculty are the OHSU IM Residency Program Director, an Associate Program Director, Point-of-Care Ultrasound Director, and the IM 4th Year Clerkship Director in addition to other educational roles within the institution.

Preoperative Medicine Clinic

The Division has been active in inpatient preoperative medicine since 1998, followed by the creation of the Preoperative Medicine Clinic (PMC) in 2008.  We work closely with the Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine and multiple surgical and procedural departments and divisions to provide care before a variety of surgeries and procedures performed at OHSU.  We find the cornerstone of pre-operative care to be comprehensive patient-centered risk assessments.
