Oregon, our home in the Pacific Northwest is a special place. With seven diverse regions, Oregon has high desert, valleys, mountains, ocean, small towns, and cities, is culturally diverse and has abundant recreational opportunities.

Ready to explore?

Our medical community is represented throughout the state providing care in frontier, rural and urban areas:  Blue Mountains of Eastern Oregon, picturesque Central Oregon, or the scenic coast line, our agricultural rich Willamette Valley or Southern Oregon, home to Crater Lake, Oregon’s only national park.

Discover your opportunity!

Practice in one of our Rural or Critical Access Hospitals, our Rural Health Clinics, Federally-Qualified Health Centers or private practice.

Oregon’s communities offer diversity, providing the opportunity to care for young families to seniors and everything in between, contributing to the lifelong health of your patients. Oregon’s friendly atmosphere will enhance your integration into a practice and community.

Contribute to success!

Oregon’s pulse on education and technology broadens your ability to care for patients, partnered with our care team approach to providing affordable, quality care for all.

Oregon practitioners have this to say…

“I enjoy spending time in a rural community and enjoy the bounty of outdoor activities available nearby. I really enjoy how genuine and appreciative the patients are here for the care they receive” – Physician Assistant, Family Medicine, Tillamook, Oregon

“I love rural family medicine in Klamath Falls due to interesting pathology in the area and autonomy in my practice. I love the outdoor activities around.” – Physician Assistant, General Practice, Klamath Falls, Oregon

“I love living among my patients. I see them at the local restaurants, grocery stores and in general around town.  It is great to know that I am contributing to my community.” – Physician, Family Medicine, Woodburn, Oregon

“John Day faces plenty of challenges as a community, including high unemployment and related economic depression, which affects my patients' ability to seek medical care. However, it is a close-knit community with a surprising variety of youth programs and opportunities, which makes it a good place to raise a family.” – Physician, John Day, Oregon

“I enjoy working and living in the Rogue Valley. The people are "salt of the earth" types and the valley has much to offer in ways of outdoor activities. Beautiful country and patient demographic. I plan to continue to live and work in the Rogue Valley. – Pharmacist, General Practice, Phoenix, Oregon

“I enjoy living in Newport. For a rural community the town has much to offer and the community remains vibrant.” – Physician Assistant, General Practice, Newport, Oregon

“A big pro is that I really feel like part of the community that I serve” – Physician, General Practice, Salem, Oregon

“I was able to find a house to buy in the area, became involved in my community as a volunteer firefighter, board member of a local arts center, and have made lasting friendships. Living here does have its limitations but overall I have enjoyed the experience.” – Licensed Clinical Social Worker, General Practice, Tillamook, Oregon
