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).
In addition to providing stellar clinical care to patients in and outside of the hospital, our faculty are consummate educators. 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.

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 multiple surgical departments and divisions to provide nuanced, high-quality, patient-centered care before a very wide variety of surgeries offered at OHSU. We find the cornerstone of high-quality, patient-centered pre-op care to be comprehensive risk assessments.
Medicine Teaching Service
The Medicine Teaching Service (MTS) consists of faculty whose principle focus is not only the provision of high quality patient care, but also fast-paced, stimulating and challenging education, delivered in a respectful and supportive manner. The faculty consists of senior and junior faculty clinician educators. Several members are active in curriculum oversight as Residency Program Directors/Associate Program Directors, Student Clerkship Directors, or active in major medical student curriculum committees
Clinical Hospitalist Service
The Clinical Hospitalist Service (CHS) consists of attending faculty and advanced practice providers as well as learners who can select to rotate on this service. Providing compassionate and exceptional care to the patient populations it serves is a core value the CHS sees patients independently, in co-management and can also provide medical consultation to other services. Providers serve on a variety of committees and are involved in numerous projects impacting the clinical and educational missions of the institution.
