Transform Your Practice and Your Life!

Welcome to Oregon, where you can balance a healthy, active lifestyle with the affordability and quality of life that our beautiful state has to offer. Explore the diverse regions and top-rated communities of the Pacific Northwest, and take advantage of Oregon’s healthcare provider incentive programs, such as loan repayment and tax credits.


Key Points

Top 3 Reasons to Work, Play, and Live in Oregon:

  1. Benefit from Oregon’s Loan Repayment and Tax Credits: In the past year, our state has funded over $4 Million in loan repayment programs for clinicians working in underserved communities across the state. We also offer a rural provider tax credit, and medical malpractice insurance subsidies.
  2. Explore Oregon and the Pacific Northwest! From high deserts to lush forests, spectacular rivers and over 300 miles of coastline, there is something for everyone in Oregon’s 98,000 square miles. Enjoy the bounty from local farms, vineyards, and breweries, and sample the creations of world class chefs in everything from casual food carts to fine dining restaurants.  Oregon is also home to 13 national forests, 745,000 acres in 6 state forests, 188 state parks, and 17 wildlife refuges.  Enjoy vast opportunities for hiking, surfing, skiing, snowboarding, kite surfing, wind surfing, sailing, camping, road and mountain biking, rafting, kayaking, fishing, and finishing with a soak in one of our many hot springs.
  3. Quality of life: Green is our color! Oregon is a leader in renewable energy and environmentally friendly practices. You and your family can enjoy nature, eat local organic food, breathe clean air, and drink clean water. Buying a house and land is easier with the lower cost of living here.

Be a part of transformative healthcare – Oregon is known for its independent spirit, as well as its strong creative communities. These same qualities have made Oregon a national leader in health care, with a new and more flexible model that expands access and improves the wellbeing of our communities. With a shift of focus to prevention and creating accountability, costs are also reduced overall.
