The Power of Difference

As the demographics of our state and country evolve, we as an institution pledge to mold a workforce that mirrors the cultural milieu. 

At Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) School of Medicine, we aim to recruit, retain, and develop diverse resident physicians of the highest caliber. We believe that in order to deliver great health care, we must train culturally-competent physicians from diverse backgrounds -  including members of racial and ethnic groups that are historically under-represented in medicine, individuals raised in rural environments, and people who have overcome significant social and financial disadvantages. 

By weaving together a team of health care professionals that has a varied set of perspectives, values and experiences, we will create a welcoming environment that is inclusive and that fosters growth and innovation. We believe in the power of difference to fulfill our academic missions!
