- The OHSU School of Medicine was founded in 1867. Today, the medical school accepts over 230 students. "Students who do well at OHSU are independent, lifelong learners. Our graduates are motivated by scientific discovery and committed to becoming health care leaders who meet patients’ needs throughout the Northwest. In particular, the M.D. program seeks students who have an interest in rural health, underserved areas and primary care, or an understanding and appreciation of health care issues and an interest in biomedical research" (Source: https://www.ohsu.edu/school-of-medicine/md-program/admissions).
