Diversity Recruitment and Community Outreach

While Oregon Health & Science University may be best known as a healthcare organization that hires patient-care workers, we provide a variety of career opportunities in other areas. OHSU is comprised of the Schools of Dentistry, Medicine and Nursing, College of Pharmacy, two hospitals, multiple clinical care practices, dozens of research institutes and centers, and more than 200 community service programs.

OHSU actively recruits employees, students and volunteers from various diverse communities. With regard to employment, encouraging diversity ensures we are leveraging the varied strengths that can be gained from differing perspectives. “Diversity is fundamental to OHSU’s ability to attract and retain top talent, promote innovation and creativity, flourish in a competitive market, maximize the return on our investment in people and ensure flexibility to thrive” (OHSU Diversity Business Case, Policy No. 03-05-030).

OHSU values a diverse and culturally competent workforce. Individuals with diverse backgrounds and those who promote diversity and a culture of inclusion are encouraged to apply. OHSU provides reasonable accommodations for applicants with disabilities. We are proud to be an equal opportunity, affirmative action organization.

OHSU values a diverse and culturally competent workforce.

Cultural community partnerships fortify OHSU’s efforts to enhance awareness of the cultural richness in the greater Portland area. We will continue our robust outreach efforts to enhance community collaborations and business partnerships designed to engage diverse communities in healing, teaching, research and community outreach.
