Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU)
Their vision is to partner to make Oregon a national leader in health and science innovation for the purpose of improving the health and well-being of Oregonians and beyond.
OHSU’s focus on healing, teaching and discovery — combined with their deep history in Oregon — is unique. They are the state’s only academic health center and one of the only universities in the U.S. devoted exclusively to educating doctors, dentists, nurses, pharmacists and public health professionals. They not only treat the most complex health needs in the region, they make discoveries that save lives and train leaders to address the societal issues that impede health.
As part of its multifaceted public mission, OHSU strives for excellence in education, research and scholarship, clinical practice and community service. Through its dynamic interdisciplinary environment, OHSU stimulates the spirit of inquiry, initiative, and cooperation among students, faculty and staff.
Setting the example for integrity, compassion and leadership, OHSU strives to:
-Educate tomorrow's health professionals, scientists, engineers and managers in top-tier programs that prepare them for a lifetime of learning, leadership and contribution.
-Explore new basic, clinical and applied research frontiers in health and biomedical sciences, environmental and biomedical engineering and information sciences, and translate these discoveries, wherever possible, into applications in the health and commercial sectors.
-Deliver excellence in health care, emphasizing the creation and implementation of new knowledge and cutting-edge technologies.
-Lead and advocate for programs that improve health for all Oregonians, and extend OHSU's education, research and healthcare missions through community service, partnerships and outreach.See more
