Department Overview

Unit Vision Statement:


Division Vision Statement: The Medicine Division is devoted to developing stellar professionals through our lifelong learning approach and teamwork centered care where every patient matters and healthcare professionals can deliver personal and individualized care to all.


We are the Medicine Division at OHSU consisting of three units, 14C, 5A and 5C. Our primary patient populations include a vast variety of illnesses including Cystic Fibrosis, Heart Failure, chronic conditions (ESRD, ESLD, DM2), substance use disorder (ETOH withdraw, suboxone induction, osteomyelitis, endocarditis), and other comorbidities such as behavioral health. Many of our patients are homeless or struggle socioeconomically and we look for people who are passionate about being that person to let our patients know that we care about them and value their strengths. Our primary teams are Family Medicine, General Medicine, and Hospitalists. We collaborate with PT/OT, Dietitians, Social Work, Case Management, Speech Therapists and other members of the multidisciplinary health care team to provide exceptional care for our patients. 5A/5C are conceptually contiguous with 23 beds on 5A and 14 beds on 5C. 14C is one 31 bed unit. We are hiring into the division and training on all three units. We will work with our new hires to consider where our operational needs live and what unit they would like to make their permanent location once they are off orientation. Permanent placement could be on 14C or 5AC depending on the unit needs.
