Dean Anderson

The OHSU School of Medicine is a learning community.

Our clinicians care for patients in our hospital, clinics and, increasingly, in communities across the state, learning from and bolstering local providers and expanding access to cutting-edge care. Our researchers seek therapies for the most pernicious diseases while increasingly tapping community knowledge to tackle health disparities. Our educators innovate to prepare the next generation to advance health.

Committed to public service, we do our work with confidence but also, increasingly, with the humility to realize what we don’t know. We are leaning into our discomfort, widening the perspectives at the table, and listening to more voices – including those of our learners – to improve the climate of inclusion, respect and safety in our academic community. Join us.

Vaccine Equity Committee
As a teacher, Luretta Tinnon (striped skirt) got vaccinated when her kindergarteners returned to her classroom. When OHSU and Emmanuel Central Church partnered on a vaccine clinic, she brought her family. From left, husband Tim Tinnon; sister Alice Marie Biggs; Donn Spight, M.D., co-chair of the OHSU Vaccine Equity Committee; and Lurettas daughter and son, Tionna and Timm Tinnon. I would love to inspire more of my friends and family, Tinnon said. Show our community of color that this is OK and necessary! (OHSU/Erin Hoover Barnett)
