Life in Portland Although it’s the 23rd largest metropolitan area in the country, the City of Roses is known for its friendly people, scenic beauty and access to nature. It appears regularly on “best of” lists, including Bicycling Magazine’s top bike-friendly cities, CNN Money’s best cities to live and work and U.S. News & World Report’s best cities for public transportation. Portland is a pretty place with plenty to do. In minutes you can run, ride or row along the Willamette River. In an hour or less, hike in the woods, taste wine at a local vineyard or pick berries on a family farm. And in just 90 minutes, ski Mt. Hood, surf the Pacific or windsurf in the Columbia River Gorge. From its perch atop Marquam Hill, OHSU offers a birds-eye view of the city and easy access to Portland’s best destinations. Ride the aerial tram down to the riverfront and head out to explore all the city has to offer. Wander through the stacks at Powell’s City of Books. Grab a bite at a food cart. Meet friends for the jazz festival. And enjoy free concerts and cultural events. Before you know it, Portland will feel like home. Learn more about Portland at www.travelportland.com.

The Power of Difference Diversity is central to OHSU’s core values. It sets the tone as we train the healthcare professionals that Oregon communities need, care for people with the most difficult health challenges and work on new discoveries that help save lives. Diversity and cultural competence in our student body and workforce equip us to serve everyone better as we deliver on our mission of teaching, healing, research and community service. To support diversity throughout the university, the Center for Diversity & Inclusion provides services and resources that foster a respectful, inclusive environment where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.

CREATE YOUR FUTURE AT OHSU As Oregon’s only health and research university, OHSU brings together healing, teaching and discovery to serve Oregonians. Over 125 years, we have grown into a world-class teaching hospital that attracts top students and leading scientists who do cutting-edge work to prevent, detect and treat diseases. With more than 60 programs, we educate tomorrow’s doctors, dentists, nurses, scientists, engineers and other healthcare professionals. We care for more than 235,000 patients each year through our two hospitals and many medical and dental clinics. And we support community-based care, education and research with more than 200 outreach partnerships across Oregon. When you enroll at OHSU, you’ll build your healthcare career with world-class educational opportunities based on patient-centered care and hands-on learning in physician offices, community settings and research units.

Degree Programs School of Medicine We grant doctorates in medicine and philosophy, masters in science, public health and physician assistant studies and combined degrees. School of Dentistry We grant a doctorate in dental medicine and offer advanced specialty education programs in endodontics, oral and maxillofacial surgery, orthodontics, pediatric dentistry and periodontics School of Nursing We grant undergraduate, graduate and doctoral degrees in nursing, offering coursework at five campuses across Oregon and continuing education opportunities for current nurses. College of Pharmacy We offer a Doctor of Pharmacy degree in partnership with Oregon State University. Other Healthcare Professional Programs We offer a range of undergraduate and graduate programs through the School of Medicine, including graduate programs in human nutrition, physician assistant education and radiation therapy.

Academic support and enrichment If you’re interested in attending OHSU, we can help you with academic preparation plans and referrals to scholarships, mentorship, and volunteer and paid opportunities. We also offer enrichment programs that provide hands-on experience for disadvantaged high school and college students interested in healthcare careers. Diversity Resource Guide This comprehensive guide makes it easy to find organizations and businesses in Portland that serve the needs of our diverse community. Accessibility OHSU provides students with disabilities reasonable accommodations that may include academic adjustments, auxiliary aids and/or program modifications. OHSU complies with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities of 1990. Cultural Competency Lectures CDI brings diverse speakers who address a wide range of issues related to culture, race, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and their congruence with health disparities and access to care. Community Service Opportunities The OHSU community actively participates in programs and initiatives that are focused on eliminating health disparities in underserved communities.

Diverse in People and Ideas Student Interest Groups The Center for Diversity & Inclusion works closely with several student interest groups to provide mentoring, support and funding. • Asian Pacific American Medical Student Association (APAMSA) • Latino Medical Student Association (LMSA) • Student National Medical Association (SNMA) • Students for LGBTQ Health • Students of Islam and Medicine Society (SIMS) • OHSU Student Diversity Committee

At OHSU, we embrace the full spectrum of diversity, including age, color, culture, disability, ethnicity, gender identity or expression, marital status, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status. We respect and support diversity of thought, ideas and more. To fully leverage the richness of our diversity at OHSU, we must create, maintain and promote a community of inclusion. Inclusion means we honor, respect, embrace and value the unique contributions and perspectives of all employees, patients, students, volunteers and our local and global communities. It also includes removing barriers to individual success.
