OHSU Visitors and Volunteers serves all mission areas by providing a variety of services that address organizational needs by supporting volunteer, learning, and collaboration opportunities. These learning opportunities focus on teaching future healthcare providers, scientists, and educators in partnership with various programs within OHSU.  Each visitor or volunteer is tasked with securing their own opportunity and will work side by side with their hosting department to develop their assignment. Each opportunity creates a space for learning and growth for the individual, and assists in driving forward OHSU’s Missions. 

Please find more information about the Research & Academics process below.  

Due to the restrictions put in place to safely navigate COVID-19, all educational experiences for visiting learners with start dates before June 2021 have been restricted. This restriction applies to all in-person and virtual clinical placements, rotations, internships, externships, practicums, educational observations, pathway programs and any other training programs in healthcare or research and academics. All exception requests must be submitted through the VLOC Modified Operations Screening Form for review. Please have your hosting department visit our O2 page for more information.
