A Vision for the Future

As the state of Oregon’s only health and research university, OHSU is a unique resource for Oregonians as the place where healing, teaching and discovery come together to serve the entire state. We train the healthcare professionals that Oregon communities need. We provide care to those with the most difficult health challenges. And our faculty works every day to come up with new discoveries that help save lives.
