OHSU adopts $2B budget

The Oregon Health & Science University Board of Directors adopted a budget of $2.085 billion for the next fiscal year.

Noting that while OHSU was ranked number 11 in social medicine and number 19 in research by the Annals of Internal Medicine, [provost Dr. Jeanette] Mladenovic stated that OHSU is one of the most expensive public medical schools in the country – a fact that may be keeping students from disadvantaged backgrounds, such as rural students or those from underrepresented minorities, from being able to attend the school.

“We have become much more tuition-dependent than state schools have in the past,” Mladenovic said, while noting that other public medical schools on the West Coast – those most likely to compete for OHSU's students – still have comparable, if lower, tuition rates.
