Educating thousands of future health care providers. You get the picture. Immerse yourself in more facts and stats than you probably need about Portland's largest employer, Oregon's provider of care to every corner of the state, and one of the nation's top 28 biomedical research institutions. 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.
