Oregon Health & Science University



In October 1887, the University of Oregon established a department of medicine in Northwest Portland. Since those first building blocks were laid down, the university has dramatically expanded both in form and function, but its core values and mission remain the same today.


OHSU researchers transform science every day with their discoveries. Whether it is in the lab, the clinic, the community, or the larger world, our work is challenging the status quo to improve health for all Oregonians and beyond.


As the state's only academic health center, OHSU's breakthrough research leads to new cures, new standards of care, and a better understanding of the basic science that drives biomedical discovery.


When you join OHSU, you join a dedicated team of caregivers, educators, researchers and administrative professionals who diligently pursue the advancement and application of knowledge to directly benefit Oregonians.
