Physician-Scientist Program

Science bottles

In 2018, Dean Sharon Anderson prioritized support to sustain the work of physician scientists at OHSU and attract more.

The program is a comprehensive approach that provides support across the professional continuum, helping departments and units create robust start-up packages and support the work of junior scientists to reach the level of independent funding.

Start-up and transition periods are particularly critical times in the development of physician-scientists. The Physician-Scientist Program offers both transitional and new appointment/recruitment support awards to support exceptional physician-scientists at OHSU.
