Giving Opportunities

We need you!

DFEOHSU is Oregon’s only medical school. As such, the school has a unique role to play in Oregon’s healthcare system. A key part of this is ensuring that Oregon has the highest quality and most geographically well-distributed healthcare workforce possible. The School of Medicine is committed to helping create a workforce that reflects demographic diversity of all types — cultural, socio-economic and geographic. Oregon, like the rest of the nation, is facing a physician workforce shortage, especially in rural settings and in primary care specialties. The School of Medicine has initiatives underway to address shortages and to enhance educational curriculum to match future healthcare needs. Meeting the school's goals and Oregon’s needs will require campus expansion.
