University Affiliation

Providence Portland Medical Center is a major teaching affiliate of Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) and Washington State University (WSU). Many of our faculty and staff physicians hold academic appointments from both universities, and the relationships are fostered through a mutual commitment to undergraduate medical education. Students from OHSU and WSU rotate on the medical wards, ICU, ambulatory care setting and in surgical services. They have consistently rated their experience on the medicine wards and ICU as one of their best, citing the exceptional quality and quantity of teaching. Residents and faculty alike enjoy the challenges of teaching, which adds to the rigorous academic environment of the program.
