Oregon Health & Science University is the state’s only academic health center. It provides an uncommon array of services from providing the state’s most comprehensive health care, to educating the next generation of clinicians and biomedical researchers, to achieving breakthroughs and innovations. Its hospitals and clinics serve more than a quarter of a million patients every year with innovative care and treatment models based on the latest knowledge available.
From humble beginnings in 1887, OHSU has grown into a world-class teaching hospital and research center that draws in students, scientists and patients from across the country and around the globe.
Nearly one million patient visits each year. Educating thousands of future health care providers. You get the picture.

OHSU is the kind of place where the big news doesn't always involve sports, politics, fashion or even weather.
