Resources for Oregon-licensed Health Providers: Home

Directory of resources available to health professionals licensed to practice in Oregon and not otherwise affiliated with OHSU.

Access to OHSU resources

Oregon-licensed health providers (without OHSU affiliation) have access to a number of resources from the National Library of Medicine and other sources, and to some OHSU library resources. Access varies depending on licensure (see details below), and some resources require users have an OHSU Library barcode, which can be requested here.
