Educating Future & Current Health Providers

Doctors that train together, treat together...

Education and training

OCIM has a history of collaborating on health education curriculum, residency opportunities, cross-discipline precepting opportunities, fellowships, courses, conferences and continuing medical education events. 

Our vision... We believe the new frontier of medical education is to enable motivated students to cross among the academic institutions without barriers and without duplication, completing combined degrees in accelerated timelines. Standing beside the traditional MD/PhD or MD/MPH will be the ND/ MD, the MD/DAOM, the ND/DC, the ND/PhD, the DAOM/MPH and countless other combinations to build new vanguards of cross trained clinicians focused on inclusivity and collaboration, not exclusivity and competition. OCIM’s vision is to maximize our stewardship of the gifts of Portland to model the ‘stemcell’ clinician, differentiated not by a paradigm, but by choice. OCIM is seeking partners to fulfill this vision.
